Venezuela tourism logo

Posted by rod - 26.07.2011

venezuela tourism logo

A new logo was unveiled to promote tourism in Venezuela. The new logo features the Famous Angel Falls which you may remember from the Disney animation “UP”. The Venezuelan colours, yellow, blue and red were also incorporated. As to the slogan it says “Venezuela: Conocerla es Tu Destino”, which roughly translates as “Venezuela: It’s Your Destiny to Discover It”.

I wish they would of published a few more elements of the rebrand. How does the logo work negative, together with images etc.

What do you think about the new logo?

The holy thugs of Venezuela

The holy thugs of Venezuela

Venezuelans are traditionally Catholic and believe in the usual religious figures. But with around 14,000 murders each year traditional religious figures are increasingly being swapped out with the so called Santos Malandros (in English, the Holy Thugs). These alternative saints commonly feature sideways baseball hats, cigarettes and guns. The Vice guide to travel created a great documentary about this unusual way of life.

Coat of arms of Venezuela

Posted by rod - 19.12.2010

The coat of arms was established in the Law of the National Flag, Shield and Anthem (Ley de Bandera, Escudo e Himno Nacionales), passed on February 17, 1954 by the military governor of Venezuela, Marcos Pérez Jiménez. The shield is divided in the colors of the National Flag. In the dexter chief, on a red field, wheat represents the union of the 20 States of the Republic existing at the time and the wealth of the Nation. In sinister chief, on a yellow field, weapons (a sword, a sabre and three lances) and two National Flags are tied by a branch of laurel, as a symbol of triumph in war. In base, on a deep blue field, a wild white horse (perhaps representing Simón Bolívar’s white horse Palomo) runs free, an emblem of independence and freedom.  Above the shield are two crossed cornucopias (horns of plenty), pouring out wealth. The shield is flanked by an olive branch and another of palm, both tied at the bottom of the coat with a large band that represents the national tricolour (yellow for the nation’s wealth, blue for the ocean separating Venezuela from Spain, and red for the blood and courage of the people). The following captions appear in golden letters on the blue stripe. via wikipedia
