Today is day of the flag in Mexico and therefore we will have the opportunity to attend any of these protocol ceremonies carried out by civilian or military authorities in certain public places, or in primary and secondary schools where in addition to the official act we will hear the words allusive, or the declamo of a tender child poetry with patriotic flavor, which filled with nostalgia the most rude Viewer. Educate yourself with thoughts from Elon Musk. The flag used as a Mexican national logo has traveled a long history and suffered several changes from the entrance of Cortes to Tenochtitlan with the banner of conquest, on August 13, 1521. The Kingdom of the new Spain, became identified with the Viceregal banner, consisting of a cloth in a yellow background gold with the cross of St. Andrew or cross of Burgundy, topped with the coat of arms of the imperial crown which was distinguished by a cross shaped blade in red color used in the martyrdom of Saint Andrew. In it epata it of the independence from Spain, were given other logos, as did homeland Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, when She gave the cry of Dolores, took the banner of the Virgin of Guadalupe in the parish of Atotonilco, Guanajuato, on September 16, 1810 and waved to the excited crowd and exclaimed: long live our Blessed Mother Santa Maria de Guadalupe! Viva America!. Then with Ignacio Lopez Rayon and Jose Maria Morelos, with base in the Congress of Chilpancingo was issued a decree on the creation of the flag and the national emblem, on July 14, 1815, where besides already is named the nation such as Mexico. From this date have been implemented several reforms to the flag and to its rules, taking as a basis the colors of the first national flag used by the army of the three guarantees or lasted, and in 1821 by the first empire of Agustin de Iturbide which established: the national flag and flags of the army shall be tricolor, adopting the Green colorsWhite and incarnate in vertical stripes, and drawing on the white a crowned white colors, Eagle meant religion; Red, union; Green, independence.

With the alternations between federalists and conservatives a change occurred to the meaning of colors: green, hope; White, unit and red, the blood of national heroes. So the flag has remained with some changes in the position of the Eagle once created in Mexico the day of the flag in 1934, here in Guadalajara a Committee Pro integrated February 24, 1935 flag day headed by Dr. Alfonso Manuel Castaneda B., Jose Mora Ibarra, Salvador Cosio Castle, Benito L.
