The Mexican flag was designed in 1821 when Mexico gained its independence from Spain. The flag has three colored stripes: red, green, white. The red represents the bloodshed by Mexican heroes, and the white symbolizes the purity of the Roman Catholic Religion. Green stands for hope and posterity. The coat of arms is from an Aztec legend that helped them settle on a specific location, Mexico. Even though the flag goes way back, the heritage is still practiced today.
