Mexico Independence Day Facts & Quotes

  • Mexico's flag was installed in 1821, the year Mexico reached independence. The tricolor contained the national colors of red, white, and green in diagonal lines. The colors have remained the same, but their placement and the crest in the center of the flag has changed over time. Each of the three colors has a particular significance; it is said that the color green symbolizes hope, white is for unity, and red is for the blood of the national heroes. The crest in the center panel is Mexico's coat of arms and represents an eagle with a snake in its beak standing on a cactus, which comes from the legend of how Tenochtitlan (the Aztec capital where Mexico City is now) was founded.
  • Mexico City is the oldest city in North America.
