One of the new requirements Hugo Chavez has of Venezuelan states is that they find a way to honor him in their flags. Since Zulia is last alphabetically, they had to scrape the bottom of the barrel for ideas. They chose to represent Hugo Chavez’ favorite Halloween costume: Relámpago Bolivariano, o en Inglés, Bolivarian Lightning. Every Halloween, Chavez squeezes into his ever tighter Spandex unitard, which is blue on top and black (very slimming) below. He makes his transit across the solar disc in the cockpit of an F-16 fighter jet, and throws cardboard lightning bolts out into the countryside. It is said that those who come to possess an intact bolt will receive thre barrels of high-sulfur oil.
