Ministry of Defence


by Guillermo T. Aveledo, 3 January 2001

Here's the flag of the Venezuelan Ministry of Defense: the field is silver, not sky blue; and the letters are all gold.
Guillermo T. Aveledo, 3 January 2001

According to Lacasadelasbanderas.com, there is no inscription under the CoA.
Dov Gutterman, 23 June 2001

I found an article on the Colombian newspaper El Colombiano featuring the newly appointed Minister of Defence of Venezuela. In the article one can (supposedly) the flag of the Ministry of Defence (red background with the golden inscription that reads on the bottom "DEFENSA", one can infer that's the flag of that Ministry).
On the official website of the Venezuelan Ministry of Defence, one can see the Coat of Arms with a much better resolution.
However, there's a difference between the flag seen in the newspaper article (red background) while the flag displayed here is silver.

Guardia Nacional de Venezuela

These are the flags of the National Guard of Venezuela, also known as the Fuerzas Armadas de Cooperacion ("Armed Forces of Cooperation"), given their auxiliary (but not lesser) duties to the other Forces, and their contact with civilian life.


by Guillermo T. Aveledo , 22 December 1999

Guardia Nacional de Venezuela, Bandera de Regimiento y Guarnición. (National Guard of Venezuela; regimental and garrison flag). - A brownish-burgundy field, and, within it, the National Guard's Garrison CoA and the words "National Guard - Venezuela" over and under the CoA. The CoA itself consists of a Venezuelan Tricolori ribbon as a crown for a non-parted shield, embroidered in or and fielded with the very same brownish-burgundy. The symbols within it are an arrow and a spear crossed (symbolising both defense and attack) over a bow which ultimately gives way to a scale, the scale of Justice, as the Guard bears many policial and judicial duties; all this in gold or yellow. Bellow the spear and arrow, a white five-pointed star, symbolising honour, appears.

Guardia Nacional de Venezuela, Bandera de la Comandancia y del Ceremonial. (National Guard of Venezuela; commander and ceremonial flag). Same brownish-burgundy, this time with a golden fringe (I am not sure if this is compulsory, but it is customary). Within the flag we see the National Guard's CoA (with the words "Fuerzas Armadas- De Cooperacion" above and under it), with a small shield depicting the symbols previously mentioned and explained (this time the tricolori ribbon rests within the shield, just above the crossed spear and arrow). Ading to this, and crowning the shield, a set of four turrets, garrison or fort towers, in gold or yellow and bellow a brownish-burgundy ribbon, embroidered in gold with the words "Guardia Nacional de Venezuela" on the first line; and the Guard's motto on the second one: "El Honor es su Divisa" (Honour is its badge)...
