24 February - Flag Day - National Holiday

Mexicans remember national heritage and the meaning of the red, white and green bandera every year, on February 24th.

The celebration marks the victory of Mexicans in the War of Independence against the Spanish, a struggle that lasted 11 years.

 

Dia de la Bandera
The Mexican flag.

On the same day in 1821, Agustín de Iturbide and Vicente Guerrero, leaders of forces against the Spanish, ended the struggle when they officially declared Mexican independence in their Plan de Iguala.

The plan set out 3 guarantees for all Mexicans represented by the colors of the flag:

Red - the union and equality of all Mexicans, of Spanish or native ascent.

White - the Catholic church.

Green - the independence of Mexico.

The Mexican War of Independence began in 1810 with the Grito de Dolores. That anniversary is celebrated every year on September 16th, Mexican Independence Day.
