Anthem Lyrics

Gloria al bravo pueblo,


que el yugo lanzo,


La ley respetando,


la virtud y honor


(bis)

1.

Abajo Cadenas


Gritaba el señor


El pobre en su choza,


libertad pidio.


Y a este santo nombre


temblo de pavor


el vil egoismo


que otra vez triunfo.


2

Gritemos con brio,


Muera la opresión!!


Compatriotas fieles,


la fuerza es la unión.


Y desde el empireo,


el supremo autor,


un sublime aliento


al pueblo infundió.


3

Unida con lazos


que el cielo formo,


la América toda


existe en nación.


Y si el despotismo


levanta la voz,


seguid el ejemplo


que Caracas dio.

Venezuela Flag

Flag History The seven stars represent the seven provinces that began the fight for independence. The emblems on the arms symbolize the unity of the 20 provinces(a wheatsheaf with 20 ears), the struggle for independence (flags and weapons) and liberty ( a running horse). The cornucopias stand for the country's wealth and prosperity, and the wreath of laurel and palm is a symbol of glory and peace. In March 2006 Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez proposed changes to the flag which include a white horse

galloping left instead of right, an additional star, a bow and arrow

representing Venezuela’s indigenous people and a machete to represent

the labor of workers,

Parliament approved the changes to the

200-year-old flag design, including the addition of the eighth star to honor

the province of Guayana.
