Mexico’s Flag Day

Posted by: | February 24, 2009 | Comments Off on Mexico’s Flag Day

The Independence Movement
The purity of the Catholic faith.
The Spaniards that joined in the quest for Independence.
The blood of the National Heroes

The emblem-shield symbolizes the Aztec heritage.
According to the legend, the gods had advised the Aztecs that the place where they should establish their city was to be identified when they saw an eagle, perched on a prickly pear tree, devouring a serpent. They saw this mythical eagle on a marshy lake that is now the zócalo or main plaza in Mexico City.

This flag was created in 1821, when the Independence movement had ended victoriously.
El Día de la Bandera or the Fiesta of the Mexican Flag is celebrated on February 24.
