Mexican Flag

Transcript: The "Mexican National Anthem" , also known as "Mexicans, at the cry of war", is the national anthem of the United Mexican States. The anthem was first used in 1854, although it was not officially adopted de jure until 1943. The lyrics of the national anthem, which allude to historical Mexican military victories in the heat of battle and including cries of defending the homeland, were composed by poet Francisco González Bocanegra after a Federal contest in 1853. Later, in 1854, he asked Jaime Nunó to compose the music which now accompanies González's poem Officially since 1943, the full national anthem consists of the chorus and 1st, 5th, 6th, and 10th stanzas. The modification of the lyrics was ordered by President Manuel Ávila Camacho in a decree printed in the Diario Oficial de la Federación The flag of Mexico is a vertical tricolor of green, white, and red with the national coat of arms charged in the center of the white stripe. Mexican Flag National Anthem part 2 Meaning of the Flag A musical composition was chosen at the same time as the lyrics. The winner was Juan Bottesini, but his entry was disliked due to aesthetics. This rejection caused a second national contest to find music for the lyrics. At the end of the second contest, the music that was chosen for González's lyrics was composed by Jaime Nunó, the then Catalan-born King of Spain's band leader. Green is hope, white is unity, and red is the blood of heroes. These meanings are not enforced by law, so they may continue to change. Today the coat of arms is in the center of the flag, showing an eagle eating a rattlesnake perched on the nopal cactus. National Anthem
