HISTORY OF THE MEXICAN FLAG
The Mexican War of Independence was fought from 1810-1821, and for those eleven years, Mexico had no official flag. Since Mexico was not yet a nation of its own, its national flag was still in question. Mexico’s independence from the Spanish empire was fiercely battled and hard-won, and their sovereignty as an independent nation was finally recognized in 1821. At that time, the Mexican flag was in its early stages: the distinctive red, green and white coloring had been chosen, but the Mexican coat of arms had yet to be added. That defining feature wouldn’t come until 1865 – when Mexico’s Emperor Maximillian decided to add a colorful dash of Aztec history to the flag’s center.
An ancient Aztec legend tells the story of how the great city of Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City) came to be. The story goes that the Gods told the people to look for an eagle, sitting on a cactus, devouring a serpent. Wherever they saw this eagle, said the Gods, would be the spot where their new city would be built.
The flag of Mexico now famously displays a mighty eagle, serpent clutched in its talons, perched atop a prickly pear cactus.
