History of the First Federal Republic Flag of Mexico
The Mexican flag in use from 1863 to 1916, known as the Mexican Flag of the Reform, was a variant of the national flag during a significant period in Mexican history. It featured the familiar vertical tricolor design of green, white, and red stripes. However, the flag during this period had the addition of a prominent emblem in the center of the white stripe.
The emblem consisted of a golden eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus, grasping a serpent in its beak. This depiction represented the ancient Aztec legend of the foundation of Tenochtitlan, the precursor to Mexico City. The Mexican Flag of the Reform symbolized the ideals of the Mexican Reform Movement, advocating for liberal reforms and secularization during a time of political and social transformation in Mexico.
