Escudo de Lara State


The arms were granted on May 8, 1905.

The enamels of the arms recall the National flag of Venezuela. The sickle and the ears remember the agriculture and the abundance of the Larensian ground. The ox heads allude to the cattle, another important resource of the state. The bar and the canons symbolize the indomitable fierceness of the Larensian people.

The silvered escutcheon and the tower remembers the strength required to defend the integrity of Venezuela. The Western Star how crest recall the geographical situation of the state like part of the Republic and also indicates its high destiny and its ideals. The laurels and the pennants are a tribute to the Liberators of the Nation.
