La Victoria is a town in Aragua State. I visited Aragua last month, and went to La Victoria only to realise that the red used on the flag is much lighter than officially described

La Victoria city flag is blue-crimsom/red-blue with the Coat of Arms on the center, the blue stripes about a third of the central one's height. I have a book (from the La Victoria municipal government) with the details on both flag and Coat of Arms,
On March, visiting La Victoria I noticed that all the city flags had a lighter shade of red than the one depicted on the official regulations.

According to a booklet by G. Fleitas, historian of the small city of La Victoria, Aragua State, Venezuela, (FLEITAS N., German (1997): Simbolos de la Victoria. Editions of the Aragua State Government, Maracay), La Victoria's flag has some odd dimensions: it's 4:3, 3 horizontal stripes (navy-crimsom-navy), the middle one twice as high as the upper and lower ones. Centered, the city's CoA. It was adopted on february 12th, 1988, as the Estandarte Oficial de la Ciudad de La Victoria.

I would like to add that the city of La Victoria , second in importance and former capital of Aragua State, don't owe its name to these battles, that there were two during the war of Independence, one in 1879 and another, the last one, in 1902, but to its Lady patron: Nuestra Sen~ora de Guadalupe de La Victoria.
