  • Coat of Arms: The shield is divided into the colors of the National Flag. The red displays wheat, which represents the union of the 20 States of the Republic existing at the time, and the wealth of the Nation. Yellow depicts weapons (a sword, a sabre and three lances) and two National Flags, which are tied by a branch of laurel, as a symbol of triumph in war. The blue shows a wild white horse running free, an emblem of independence and freedom.

    Above the shield are two crossed cornucopias (horns of plenty), pouring out wealth. The shield is flanked by an olive branch and another of palm, both tied at the bottom of the coat with a large band that represents the national tricolour (yellow for the nation's wealth, blue for the ocean separating Venezuela from Spain, and red for the blood and courage of the people).
