Changes to Venezuelan flag approved
The Venezuelan National assembly has now appoved the changes to the flag requested by President Hugo Chavez. As reported by Associated Press:
- President Hugo Chavez has pulled Venezuela steadily to the left, and now he's even got the horse on the national flag running that way.
Venezuela's solidly pro-Chavez National Assembly gave final approval Tuesday to changes in the flag proposed by the socialist president: an eighth star and a turnabout of the horse that until now has galloped to the right.
The move clears the way for Chavez to unfurl the new national banner on Flag Day on Sunday.
