The "plain" flag (with stars) is used as alternative civil flag and ensign.
Ivan Sache, 14 January 2001

.This is, as Mr. Orta pointed out de jure the merchant flag (or civil ensign), but it is for long now also used as de facto civil flag and also as an alternative state flag. As for the state and war flag, the exact disposition and size of stars is not determined and variations are used. The Album showes the one with "orientated" stars, but notes also that with all upright stars.

Undefaced Flag

The de-jure civil flag is apparently never, or very rarely used, and it is a undefaced tricolour of yellow-blue-red. The Album do not even mention it (and probably should not, as I understand this is almost unknown flag nowdays in Venezuela).
