So the Boliviarian giant himself, decrees that from now on the horse on the Venezuelan flag will be turning to the left, rather than to the right..
But A.M. Mora at Publius, cites a writer on a post that Daniel had at Venezuelan News, correctly stating that the animal in question is in reality facing right, because we are viewing it FROM THE FRONT.,.....
According to Thomas the writer, it is the wearer of the shield whose vantage point controls what direction said animal is facing.
I found the change concerning the coat of arms incredibly funny. Coat of Arms - because they are derived from the front painting of a shield - are *always* read from the point of view of the *bearer* of the shield.
In other words, previously the horse pointed to the left and looked back at the *right* opposition left behind. Now the horse is not only pointing to the right, it is galopping frantically away from the left (where Chavez stands politically). The correct description of Venezuelas coat of arms is now: ".... a silver (white does not exist in heraldry) horse on blue ground, galopping to the *right*..."
LOL, Chavez equine changes, make him out to be a total jackass.
