The flag of Venezuela (Spanish: Bandera de Venezuela) consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width, colored yellow, blue, and red from top to bottom. These colors are rich in symbolism. The yellow stripe represents the nation's wealth and resources, including the abundant sunshine that graces the country. The blue stripe represents the vast sea that borders Venezuela and the Caribbean sky, symbolizing the country's aspirations for a better future. The red stripe signifies the bloodshed by those who fought for independence from Spanish colonial rule. Also, inside the blue stripe, there are eight white stars arranged in an arc.
