Eagle On Mexican Flag

Golden Eagle on Mexican Flag

Mexican coat of Arms (the eagle on the Mexican national flag devouring the snake) is derived from an old Aztec legend.

The Aztecs were wandering in what is now modern state of Mexico in search of a perfect place where to build the most beautiful and the biggest city there is.

At one point they were told by their gods to build a city in the place where they spot an eagle and a serpent.

After many years of wandering they found the promised sign on a small island in the lake Texcoco and they founded their new capitol, the Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City).

The Coat of Arms of Mexico depicts a Mexican Golden Eagle perched upon a prickly pear cactus devouring a snake. The cactus is situated on a rock that rises above a lake.

The central figure of the Mexican Coat of Arms is the Golden Eagle which is considered to be the Mexican Eagle and it is the official bird of Mexico.

The eagle on the Mexican flag represents the Mexican people; as the eagle is always prepared for the combat and the challenges so are the Mexican people. Mexican people are brave and honorable and they would always face the danger and never run a way from it.

The snake on the Mexican flag that the eagle is devouring represents evil and all of the Mexican enemies. The fact that the Mexican eagle is devouring the snake (Mexican enemies) means that the Mexican people will always prevail over their enemies.

The cactus represents Mexicos challenges, troubles and turmoil however the eagle defiantly standing on them means that the Mexican people would always overcome any challenge that is placed in front of them and that they would always be victorious.

The rock and the water represent the Mexican origin and the Mexican land and sea, which are protected by the glorious Mexican eagle (Mexican people).

The branch of oak and the laurel branches represent victory and the martyrdom of the fallen heroes that have given their lives for Mexico.
