The Mexican flag was officially adopted on September 16, 1968, but similar designs can be dated back to 1821. The banner is a tricolor design with three vertical bars. The colors are red, white, and green. The colors were originally adopted during the country’s struggle for independence with Spain. They originated from the banner of the Army of the Three Guarantees. Green stands for independence, white stands for faith, and red stands for unity between America and Europe.
The Mexican flag has colors that now have new meanings, which occurred after secularization. The green stands for hope, the white stands for unity, and the red stands for blood of heroes. Other meanings to the colors have also been assigned by other sources. The ratio of the rectangle is 4:7.
In the middle, the coat of arms is placed. The Mexican flag contains this symbol, which was inspired by the founding of Tenochtitlán. The design has undergone many changes throughout the years, especially in terms of what logo was used in the center.
The nation’s most populated/largest and capital city is Mexico City. The Mexican flag is part of a nation whose national anthem is titled “Himno Nacional Mexicano”. The lyrics were composed by Francisco González Bocanegra. It became official in 1943.
