A new star on Venezuela's flag

"Legislation has been easily approved by Venezuela's National Assembly to modify the nation's Flag, Crest & National Anthem Law to add an eighth star in the middle blue field..."

"The added star is in recognition of the historic, economic and political role of the Guayana region in the birth of the Venezuelan nation and completes a thwarted decree issued by the Liberator Simon Bolivar in November 20, 1817 to add the star."
