A high qality picture image of
the Mexico Flag
The current Mexican Flag was adopted on
September 16, 1968. The flag contains three vertical
bands colored green, white and red. The
national coat of arms is in the center of the white band.
The colors were adopted right after gaining independence
from Spain. The green on the flag symbolizes hope and the
white represents unity. The red on the flag symbolizes
the blood of the national heroes of Mexico. The coat of
arms in the center comes from an Aztec pictogram for
Tenochtitlan. The Aztec legend stated that they would
find their city where they find an eagle eating a snake
on top of a cactus.
