Overview

The "plain" flag (with stars) is used as alternative civil flag and ensign.
Ivan Sache, 14 January 2001

.This is, as Mr. Orta pointed out de jure the merchant flag (or civil ensign), but it is for long now also used as de facto civil flag and also as an alternative state flag. As for the state and war flag, the exact disposition and size of stars is not determined and variations are used. The Album showes the one with "orientated" stars, but notes also that with all upright stars.

Undefaced Flag

The de-jure civil flag is apparently never, or very rarely used, and it is a undefaced tricolour of yellow-blue-red. The Album do not even mention it (and probably should not, as I understand this is almost unknown flag nowdays in Venezuela).

President in flag suit

The president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, has been in the news again, this time for making up with president Juan Manuel Santos in neighbour country Colombia on better relations between the two countries. What's interesting from a vex perspective is however, that Chavez was dressed in a track suit jacket in the colours of his country's flag, somewhat like a modernized version of traditional herold. See e.g. http://svenska.yle.fi/nyheter/artikel.php?id=192665

I've seen him in this numerous times (both before and after the flag change, but never thought to count the stars, although I'm sure they match the flag at the time) - it's something one takes notice of as it's rather informal wear for a world leader to appear somewhat frequently in. (It actually wouldn't surprise me to hear that he enjoys running, like Bill Clinton.)
David Kendall, 12 August 2010

Indeed it was the most important news so far, until today, since Venezuela has been historically Colombia's second most important trade partner (after the U.S.), and this crisis has hampered relations between the countries at all levels.
However, the funny thing about this episode is that the meeting was held in Santa Marta, a coastal city in Colombia, where the temperature is an average of 32-35°C, so wearing a jacket is not exactly the most proper outfit for the ocassion. And as Elias writes, he has worn this jacket many many times in the past.
