The Mexican Flag

By Claudia Soriano

The Mexican Flag is very important to the country of Mexico and
has an interesting history. It was designed by Agustin de Iturbide. It was
made in the city of Iguala Guerrero, by the tailor José Magdaleno
Ocampo. 1821 was the first year that Mexico was recognized as a
sovereign country, and that was the year that the flag was designed. It
consists of three colors and the shield in the center that represents a
golden eagle, a snake, a cactus as well as olive branches. What are the
colors of the Mexican flag? The green means hope for the people, the
color white defines unity, the color red stands for the people who died
during the war for Mexican independence. The national shield of the
Mexican flag consists of an eagle perched on a cactus and a snake in the
claws of the eagle and has been modified throughout history.
