Overview

From http://www.municipiosucre.vezla.com/simbolos_del_municipio.htm, information and image of the flag of the city of Sucre in Portuguesa state"
"Franja Superior: Compuesta por un triángulo escaleno de color azul celeste, ubicado en el sentido contrario a la Franja Inferior, para significar con ello la idea de protección divina desde el firmamento. La insertada en la parte superior izquierda de la franja azul, emerge desde la pureza del blanco, la figura estilizada de una planta de café, con las mismas tonalidades del resto del diseno, para simbolizar el sustento vital de los pobladores. La fuerza expresiva del rojo de las semillas, representada en tres círculos, nos remite a la gesta libertaria de nuestros antepasados y a la sangre derramada por los Cambambas en su afán por perpetuar la raza autóctona de éstas tierras.
Franja Central: De color verde vegetal está constituida por un rectángulo que se pierde en el infinito como senal de la esperanza de un pueblo que ha hecho historia con sus hombres y con sus obras. Desde el punto de vista compositivo, viene a configurar la idea de la perspectiva geográfica, la cual se proyecta como la esencia del quehacer cotidiano de la región.
Franja Inferior: Configurada por otro triángulo escaleno de color verde grama, que simboliza la exuberante vegetación del pie de monte andino, punto de origen de la vida sucrense. La inclinación del triángulo, de menos a más, de izquierda a derecha, es una alegoría de la serranía de Biscucuy, y de la importancia que tiene la montana en la forma de vida de la gente trabajadora de este Municipio.
El color blanco que aparece de trasfondo entre los elementos de la bandera viene a testimoniar la pureza e hidalguía del pueblo sucrense."

Attributes and Semiology:
Superior fringe: Composed by a scalene triangle in sky blue, located in contrary sense to the Inferior Fringe, to mean the Divine Protection from the firmament. Inserted in the left superior part of the blue fringe and from the purity of the white, emerges the stylized figure of a coffee plant, with the same tonalities of the rest of the design, for symbolizes the vital sustenance of the residents. The expressive force of the red one in the seeds, represented by three circles, remits us to the liberal cause of our ancestors and the blood spilled by the Cambambas, the aboriginal people of the region, in their desire to perpetuate the autochthonous race of these lands.
Central fringe: In vegetable green, it is constituted by a rectangle that gets lost in the infinite as sign of the hope of a town that has made history with their men and with their works. From the compositional point of view, it comes to configure the idea of the geographical perspective, which is projected as the essence of the daily chore of the region.
Inferior fringe: Configured for another scalene triangle in grass green for symbolizes the exuberant vegetation of the foot of Andean mount, point of origin of the sucrensian life. The orientation of the triangle, from less to more, of left to right, it is an allegory of the of the Biscucuy Mountains and of the importance that it has in the form of hard-working people's of this Municipality life. The white color that appears like background among the elements of the flag, comes to testify the purity and nobility of the sucrensian people.
