The flag, the national anthem and the coat of arms are the patriotic symbols of Venezuela.

 

National Symbols of Venezuela
The patriotic symbols of Venezuela are the flag, the coat of arms, and the national anthem. Since Venezuela's diversity of flora and fauna is remarkable, the government also officially declared these national symbols:

Orchid
The national flower is the orchid (Cattleya mossiae). This kind of orchid is also known as Flor de Mayo (May Flower). It was first discovered in the northern land in 1849 and was given the status of National emblem, National Flower on 23 May 1951.

Araguaney
The national tree is the araguaney (Tabebuia chrysantha). Called aravanei by the caribes indians, it can be found mostly in regions with temperate weather. It can reach a height between 6 and 12 m. The araguaney flourishes within the period following a rainy season, mostly in the first months of the year. Rómulo Gallegos referred to these months as "La primavera de oro de los araguaneyes" (the golden spring of the 'araguaneyes'). Declared National Tree on 29 May 1945.

Turpial
The national bird is the turpial (Icterus icterus). Fully colored with yellow-orange tones except in the head and the wings, which are black with a few tones in white; also has a blue spot surrounding the eyes. It can be found in woods, the llanos, at the shores of jungles, and in northern and southern Orinoco. The turpial is fairly appreciated due to its singing and was declared the National Bird on 23 May 1958.

Alma Llanera
The Alma Llanera is a Joropo whose music was composed by Pedro Elias Gutierrez based on a text by Rafael Bolívar Coronado. It is considered the second national anthem of Venezuela. It premiered at the Teatro Municipal de Caracas on September 19, 1914.

Venezuela has a unique botanical heritage for evaluation in biological, genetic, medicinal and food is just beginning. It is estimated that the flora of Venezuela comprises not less than 18,000 species of higher plants. Among the approximately 215 families that make up the Venezuelan flora, the most important in numerical order are: orchids, grasses, legumes, compound, Rubiaceae and Melastomataceae. Probably 10% of all known plant species are endemic in Venezuela, that is, they are only growing in this country, and one set floristic more remarkable for their high degree of endemism and plant growth is no stranger doubt the tabular mountains "Tepuyes" of Guiana, which are spread throughout southern Venezuela: in the flat and rocky summits of these mountains, historic and ecologically isolated from the surrounding lowland systems, many species have developed peculiar plants that have adapted to the harsh climatic conditions and extreme poverty of nutrients in sandy or rocky substrates.
