Flag of Mexico

What do the colors of the Mexican flag stand for?

At the end of the Mexican War of Independence (1810-1821), the Army of the Three Guarantees (Spanish: Ejercito Trigaranteor Ejercito de las Tres Garantias) was the name given to the army after the unification of the Spanish troops led by Agustin de Iturbide and the Mexican insurgent troops of Vicente Guerrero, consolidating Mexico's independence from Spain.

At first, the meaning of the colors of the Army of the Three Guarantees was:

  • Green: was a sign of independence from Spain.
  • White: Religion, faith or belief, the Roman Catholic faith.
  • Red: Union among Americans and Europeans

However the meaning of these colors have varied considerably with the passage of time. The last accepted, modern definitions are:

  • Green: Hope in the future.
  • White: Unity among the Mexican people.
  • Red: The blood of the Mexican heroes.

In the middle white segment there is an eagle with a snake on its beak standing on top of a cactus, which is the Mexican coat of arms and has a meaning on its own.

National Emblems

When it was declared as national bird?

In 1963, the peacock was declared the National Bird of India because of its rich religious and legendary involvement in Indian traditions. The criteria for this choice were many. The bird must be well-distributed within the country so it could truly 'national'. It must be recognisable to the common man. It must lend itself to formal depiction, i.e. abstract depiction on government publications, etc. It must not be confused with the bird emblem of any other nation. It should be associated with Indian myths and legends. The peacock fit the bill.

Pledge of Allegiance words?

I pledge Allegiance to the flag

of the United States of America

and to the Republic for which it stands,

one nation under God, indivisible,

with Liberty and Justice for all.

I pledge of Allegiance to the flag of

the United States of America and to the Republic

for which it stands, one nation under God,

indivisible, with liberty and Justice for all.

It's not "I pledge of allegiance" but "I pledge allegiance." Also, there are only four words that are proper nouns. A better rendering:

I pledge allegiance to the flag

of the United States of America;

and to the republic, for which it stands;

one nation, under God,

indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

As for the Mexican coat of arms:

Before 1325 AD, the Aztec or Mexica (as they knew themselves) people were a nomadic tribe that wandered throughout the land, looking for a place to settle and build their capital. Their state religion awaited the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy: that the wandering tribe would find the destined site for a great city whose location would be signaled by an eagle eating a snake while perched atop a cactus.

The Aztecs saw this vision on what was then a small swampy island in the middle of lake Texcoco, after which they founded their capital city, on March 13, 1325. Not deterred by the unfavorable terrain, they set about building their city, using the chinampa system (misnamed as "floating gardens") for agriculture and to dry and expand the island. That city was Tenochtitlan, now Mexico City.

The prophesy and subsequent vision is now immortalized in Mexico's coat of arms and on the Mexican flag.

What are the uses of a library?

They are a big source of research for pupils and teachers. It is important for pupils to read because they will need to be able to read in their future. When pupils read it is increasing their vocabulary. Usually school libraries have computers, so they could use the computer for information. School libraries are useful for teachers to store pupils grades, targets and work on the computers. Teachers can make slideshows and games to make lessons more fun and interesting. Teachers can make tests on computers in the library. It gives a good place to go if you want quite, because in the library their wont be as much noise as in the playground. If a pupil wanted to do their homework during there break time then they could go there, where it's nice and quite with no one talking to them. If a pupil doesn't have a computer or printer they could go to the school library. In school libraries they can ask the ladies at the desk questions if they were stuck with a question. It offers a place for out of school clubs for example, homework club. If a pupil don't have that many books at home, they could go to the school library and take a book out. Or maybe they don't have a library near where they live so they can use the school library. Pupils that are about to leave high school can use the computers in the libraries to help them research for jobs. If people looked for everything on the internet then their would be no use of a book, so it's good to have a library because that way people are still looking things up from a book and not a computer. On the internet you can't be to sure if what your reading is true but in a non-fiction book it's more reliable than the internet.
