State Flag

Vargas state was created in 1997. Its flag is the sun-stars-cuatricolori design designed by Gual and Espana in 1797 for their conspirative movement . It was elected as such because the bicentennial of the conspiracy was celebrated in 1997 and because the movement itself originated in Macuto, a town in Vargas State.

At <> reported by Dov Gutterman there is a flag .With the map on the site I tend to believe that it is the area around La Guayra, east of Caracas.

It's a 2:3 flag. Although Gual and Espaoa never said anything on that matter . In any case, as is usually the case with the flags around here, no especifications are made. Flag Manufacturers use standard sizes, and they normally use 2:3.

Above is an improved and actualised image of the Vargas State Flag, according to the ones that can be seen in Vargas or can be purchased at retailers. It's still based on the Picornell, Gual y Espana conspiracy flag, only that the sun is different. The sun has been 'modernised', sort of speak. I have not been able to find official proportions or descriptions.

Reported WRONG Flag

by Jorge Candeias, 29 September 1999

Here's my probably wrong rendition of the Vargas state flag, Venezuela. This pic is after a website that shows the Colombian historical flags. The sun is not accurate - the original was too small to make an accurate image from it. But the rest (and the colour of the sun) is according to that picture: the vertical stripes with the width identical to the height of the horizontal stripe with the stars and the overall proportions of the drawing seem to show a 1:2 flag, and I made it so.
