Venezuela Independence Day 2020 – Today’s Doodle celebrates Venezuelan Independence Day on the 209th anniversary of its declaration of autonomy from Spanish rule. Cinco de julio (Fifth of July) is a time to honor the rich history of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and celebrate its independence.
On July 5, 1811, representatives of the seven provinces of Barcelona, Barinas, Caracas, Cumaná, Margarita, Mérida, and Trujillo cast their historic votes in favor of Venezuelan sovereignty. As depicted in today’s Doodle, the provinces are enshrined as seven stars on Venezuela’s tricolor flag, along with an eighth star added in 2006 to represent the former province of Guayana.
¡Feliz Día de la Independencia, Venezuela!
