Mexico Flag Design
In the Mexican flag design, the nation’s traditional colours of green, white and red are used in three horizontal blocks. Green is placed on the left, red on the right and white in the middle. In the centre of the flag, the traditional Mexican coat of arms is used. This depicts an Eagle sitting on a cactus, which is a gesture to a traditional Mexican legend that recalls how the Aztecs found the ancient city of Tenochtitlan.
