Mexican Flag For Kids

Mexican Flag For Kids

Great way for you children to get familiar with the traditional Mexican culture and its most important symbols is by drawing and exploring the Mexican flag.

Aside from being educational, drawing the Mexican flag is also a lot of fun for kids.

First thing you should teach your children about the Mexican flag are its colors and what those colors represent.

Meaning of colors of Mexican flag has been changing over time and that fact alone is significant and educational to share with your children.

For example, during the first Mexican Empire (1821-1823): White Religion, Green Independence, Red Union.

Mexican Republic (1823): Green Hope, White Purity, Red Religion.

Present Mexico: Green Hope, White Union, Red Blood of the Heroes.

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.
