Untitled[edit]

The person who wrote this did a very good job of getting some important and fascinating details about this person into the article. I took the liberty of smoothing it somewhat and adjusting the wording so it would flow better. --- Decumanus 08:04, 26 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Thanks, Decumanus. My english is not so good. Thanks for your help. See you in some other article. --- T6435bm 06:21, 28 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Yes, this reads well. Miranda's home in London is now cared for by the Venezuelan Embassy. --Alan 23:16, 28 March 2006 (UTC) --Alan 09:09, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Tricolor flag[edit]

Someone with more knowledge of South American history than I should add something about the tricolor flag used as a standard by Miranda, which later influenced many of the flags of the region. --Xyzzyva 09:28, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

The colors are inverted, it's yellow, blue, and red. --Alejotsv (talk) 14:18, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Re: State of Miranda[edit]

MIRANDA IS THE STILL UNRECOGNIZED FATHER OF THE US, THE TRUE FATHER OF THE COUNTRY REVEALED BY HIS PLANNING AND ACTIONS OF YORKTOWN BATTLE. IF MIRANDA HAD NOT PLANNED THE FRENCH NAVY BLOCKADE OF CHESAPEAKE, THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN INDEPENDENCE — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.69.148.23 (talk) 20:31, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

My assumption is that the Venezuelan state of Miranda is named after Sr. Miranda. I would like to add this fact to the articles... if it's true. Can anybody confirm that this is the case? Cgingold 03:39, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

I was thinking the same thing. -- Beardo 02:15, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
You're right, it's true --Alejotsv (talk) 14:19, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Yes, absolutely true. No other candidate possible for being at the origin of the name. Guy Pommares 11 September 2014 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 181.208.242.217 (talk) 00:59, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
