Mexico is a awesome country with a very promising future. It's history is perhaps the richest in all of the America's. I have traveled to Mexico several times. My first trip was in 1991. My most memorable trip was recently, in April of 2004 when I traveled to Chichen-Itza on the Yucatan Peninsula.

The flag was created in 1821 when Mexico gained its independence from Spain. The green area of the flag represents the independence movement and hope. The white area represents the purity of the Catholic faith. Red represents Union with the Spaniards that joined the independence movement or the blood of the nations heroes. The emblem-shield  symbolizes the Aztec heritage. According to legend, the gods had advised the Aztecs 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 zócalo or main plaza in Mexico City.
