The change of the meaning of the Mexican flag colors followed some of the biggest changes in the Mexican society.

For example during the long Mexican history the Catholic religion had great influence on the everyday life in Mexico because the Church representatives had equal and sometimes even bigger power and influence than the Mayor of certain village, town or city.

When the first Mexican Republic was born in 1823 this had changed in most parts of Mexico however the official religion was still the Christianity and the Mexicans that were not Christians were discriminated against on daily basis.

It took almost another 100 years to the Mexican government to put an end to the official discrimination against the non Christians (the Mexican Constitution of the 1917).

This was done by declaring that there is no official religion in Mexico and that there are 64 national languages and not only one (Spanish).

Another thing that is very interesting about the Mexican flag is the Mexican Coat of Arms which is a Mexican Eagle.

The eagle on the Mexican flag represents the strength, justice, courage, greatness, independence, pride, etc.
