The Mexican Flag is a red, white and green banner whose center contains
an eagle eating a rattlesnake while standing with its left claw upon a nopal
cactus, and a half circle of green oak (enciño) on the left (symbolizing
strength) and laurel branches on the right (symbolizing victory). The red
symbolizes the blood that was shed during the battles for Independence. The
white symbolizes purity. The green symbolizes the fertility of the earth.
The eagle eating a snake while perched upon a cactus is from an ancient
Aztec legend in which the Aztec people were told by Huitzilopochtli (their
God) that to find their promised land, they were to find the place where an
eagle landed on a nopal cactus while eating a snake. After wandering for
hundreds of years, they found the eagle on a small swampy island in Lake
Texcoco. This new Aztec home was named Tenochtitlan (meaning "Place of
the Nopal Cactus"), and in 1325, they built what is now called Mexico City.
This flag was first used on September 17, 1968 (it was decreed by Gustavo
Díaz Ordaz); it was a variation on a flag first used in 1821.
