Facts about the flag:
The flag was first used by liberation movements intent on making Mexico independent of Spain's colonial hegemony.
Spain already occupied the country as early as 1521, calling it the Kingdom of New Spain. Eventually, it became Mexico and the country established its independence in 1821.
The colors on the flag are the same as those on the flag of Italy, and because they follow the same order, Mexico's state weapon was added in the center to make it easier for people to distinguish between the two.
The green color is the symbol of the country's independence, white stands for pure religious faith, and red represents the unity between the states in Mexico. The flag was adopted on the 6th of September, 1968.
