On 7th of March 2006 the Venezuelan parliament decided a change of the emblem on the Venezuelan national flag. This change became effective on 12th of March 2006 - the official day of the flag (DÃa de la Bandera).
The following changes had been conducted:
In the left upper corner of the emblem the number of cereal spikes, which symbolize the current number of Venezuelan federal states, was increased from 20 up to 24. In the right upper corner of the emblem in addition to the wappons, which symbolize the liberty combat, an arrow and a bow as well as a machete have been added. This change honors the involvement of the indigenous populace and the African slaves during the liberty combat.
The horse, positioned in the blue field below, changed itÂ´s direction of gallop from right to left.
Furthermore, an eight star was added to the flag.
The seven white stars on the blue band stand for the seven provinces, which carried the liberty. The in 2006 added eight star reffers to a decree of SimÃ³n BolÃvars from 1817, that says through impelmentation of an eight star, the liberty of Guayana should be honored as well.

Not only for state coaches....
The Auto-Bild magazin wrote in itÂ´s last issue before Christmas:
Germany suspires, of course. But we are pope, for the first time in history a female chancellor reigns the country and the soccer worldcup 2006 is upcoming. ItÂ´s high time to show some national pride - with the german national flag at the fender of your car....
Today the new issue of the Playboy was published and it contained an article about our car flags.
At 6:30 a.m. I woke due to a phone call. A potential customer told me, that he had just bought the new issue of the Playboy and read about the new car flags. He told me also, that he needs some of our new car flags immediately.
Great! Why donÂ´t read more people the Playboy at this time of the day and order car flags afterwards?
At 10 a.m. at the gas station, where I bought 2 Playboys, the salesclerk regarded me with a frown, when I asked for a receipt and told him that I could set it off against tax liability. But whatever... My car flags had just been published 250.000 times in one of the most popular glossys. ThatÂ´s the way itÂ´s supposed to be....
And the Playboy says:
Are you Germany? Yes, but just with standard at your car....
Whether actual pro-Germany publicity campaigns or the upcoming FIFA soccer worldcup 2006 in Germany: flag presenting is "in" once again.
While cars, cleaved with colourful labels, get out of fashion, flagged fenders attract a lot of attention. Until now these flags were just shown on state coaches. On www.auto-fahnen.net and www.car-flags.eu everybody can now order individual car flags. Individual flags displayed on the own car offer the opportunity to show national pride and to present sports- and association emblems or company logos. Delivery services, wedding coaches and taxicabs displayed with colours catch attention immediately. In short: an innovative idea for advertising efforts to attract attention. The mounting of the car flag is easy, because of the magnetically adhesived flag pole. After demounting of the car flag there will be no traces left on the car. Basically the flags can be mounted on every steel sheet car body. Entrepreneur Matthias Jaekle visioned the business idea and developed a whole new way of advertising for himself and his customers as well.
