At first the flag's green color represented independence, the white color represented religion, and the red represented the unity of the Europeans and the Americans. But in 1858, Mexico's president, Benito Juarez, changed the meanings of the colors. Now white means unity, green means hope, and red represents the blood of the national heroes.
