Flag of Mexico (GIF)

The flag of Mexico (Spanish: Bandera de México) is a tricolor design consisting of three vertical stripes: green on the left, white in the middle, and red on the right. The green stripe represents hope and independence; the white symbolizes purity and religion (Roman Catholic religion); and the red embodies the blood shed by the country's heroes in defense of freedom. In the center of the white stripe, there is the Mexican national coat of arms, which features an eagle perched on a cactus with a serpent in its beak, a scene derived from Aztec mythology and representing the founding of Mexico City on the site of Tenochtitlan. The flag of Mexico is a powerful symbol of the country's history, culture, and struggle for independence.

The coat of arms of Mexico is a highly symbolic emblem featuring an eagle perched atop a prickly pear cactus, gripping a snake in its beak and talon. This iconic image has its roots in Aztec legend, as it was believed to be the sign that the Aztecs should establish their capital, Tenochtitlan, which later became Mexico City. The eagle, symbolizing strength and valor, represents the Mexican people, while the cactus signifies the challenging terrain of Mexico. The snake, often associated with Quetzalcoatl, the god of wisdom, symbolizes both the triumph over adversity and the coexistence of opposing forces. The wreath of oak and laurel leaves encircling the eagle represents victory and glory. Together, the elements of the Mexican coat of arms symbolize the nation's history, resilience, and the spirit of its people.
