The flag of Mexico, known as the “Bandera de México,” features three vertical stripes: green on the left, white in the middle, and red on the right. In the center of the white stripe lies the country’s coat of arms. It features an eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus while devouring a serpent. Legend has it that this symbol, known as the “Mexican coat of arms,” originates from an ancient Aztec legend. The green stripe represents hope and independence. The white symbolizes purity and religion, while the red signifies the blood shed by the nation’s heroes.
The flag embodies Mexico’s rich history, culture, and struggle for independence.
