The Flag and Coat of Arms of Francisco Antolín del Campo
Municipality, located on Nueva Esparta State:
The Flag - Attributes and Semiology: Consist in a field with approximate ratio 2:3; this is, square and half of length divided in three stripes. The yellow one occupies the horizontal superior half part of the field whilst the another one is vertically divided in two cantons: one blue at the hoist and other green at the fly. The yellow stripe symbolizes the radiant sun that lights the Municipality ground; by one hand and by the other the blue and green cantons represents the sea and the land which equally form part of its territory.
Historical Synthesis: Until the moment of the redaction of this report is not available data about the origin and official adoption of this flag.
Coat of Arms - Attributes: Consist in a composed shape divided per fess, the chief per pale. The Dexter-Chief Quarter enameled in Or (yellow) charges a wind-rose in Or (yellow) filled in Sable (black) accompanied on the chief by a gothic capital letter "N" in Sable (black). The Sinister-Chief Quarter enameled in Azure (blue) shows a laurel crown in its color. The Base Quarter enameled in Vert (green) presents an emblematic set conformed by a mountain in its color superimposed by three figures in Argent (white): an opened book, a gear with an ephemeris in Sable (black) and a chain. As external ornaments the Coat of Arms shows a pennant in Argent (white) charging the inscription "MUNICIPIO ANTOLIN DEL CAMPO" (Antolín del Campo Municiopality) in gothic capital letters in Sable (black) and a image of St.Joseph with the Divine Child superimposed to a nascent sun as crest and as supports two lances dressed with pennants in Or (yellow), Azure (blue) and Vert (green) to the Dexter and Sinister flanks.
Semiology: Until the moment of the redaction of this report is not available information about the semiology of this Coat of Arms.
