On July 5, 1811, it is constituted as the date of birth of independent Venezuela, the first colony in America that managed to emancipate itself from the Spanish Crown.
The date commemorates the signing of the Act of Independence of Venezuela, a document that -after the National Congress met and with an almost absolute majority- was drawn up by Juan Germán Roscio and Francisco Isnardi under the principles of self-determination of the peoples, and signed by the representatives of the United Provinces of Caracas, Cumaná, Barinas, Margarita, Barcelona, Mérida and Trujillo.
