24 de Feb
Well Tomorrow is the day of our National Flag. I just wanted to share the design of the Flag from a illustrator aspect so right here is the tiny explanation.
Green in your left side: The Independence Movement and Hope
White: The purity of the Catholic faith.Purity
Red in your right side: The Spaniards that joined in the quest for Independence. The blood of the National HeroesUnion
The emblem-shield symbolizes the Aztec heritage. According to a beautiful legend, the gods had advised the Aztecs coming from Aztlan 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 The old 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.
Have a great time!!..JESUS ANTONIO
