My object is the flag of Mexico. In Mexico there are some people that keep their flag outside of their house everyday and there are some people that take it out only on special Mexican holidays. The flag of Mexico is a very important symbol for all Mexicans, which is celebrated on flag day. The Mexican flag is an object of great national pride in Mexico. The history behind it is the Aztec legend that their gods told them to build a city where they spot an eagle in nopal eating snake which is now Mexico City. The colors in the Mexican flag have a meaning, the green part of the flag symbolizes hope, the white part of the flag represents purity and the red part of the flag symbolizes the blood of the national heroes. The Mexican flag is a very important to me and my family because this flag represents Mexico and all the history and people who died for Mexico to be a free country.
