The flag of Mexico
is made up of three equal, vertical stripes of green, white and red. The colours were adopted upon Mexicos independence from Spain, and whilst what they represent has changed over time, the colours themselves have remained entirely the same. The colours used on the Mexican flag are those of the national Mexican army, and the flag upon which those colours were first used was the flag of The Three Guarantees Army, who lead the unification and independence efforts. The first national flag setting out the modern configuration of colours was established in 1821 as Mexicos sovereignty was now recognised. The flag has since gone through four alterations, all of which have been to the central emblem. The current design was adopted in 1968, depicting an eagle, eating a serpent atop a prickly pear cactus. This image is the Aztec emblem for what is now Mexico City, as it is said that the sight of this eagle was believed to be a signal that this should be the place to found their city.
