A: You don’t have to be an expert to figure it out. I grew up in a country where the flag was blue and white. (laughs) The country wasn’t that big back then, but for us, it was white and blue. Then there were also yellow triangles on it for the flag of the U.S.A. And we had a special place in our hearts for that.
Q: If you want to go deeper into the story, are there any moments that you’ll go to when you think of the colors on the original American flag and then the original American flag in Mexico?
A: Yes indeed. When we went to Mexico as kids, we thought of the flag. That’s when we think of some of the colors. We didn’t want to go that deep, but we just remember it. That’s when our kids saw the colors on the old flag. We felt that it’s a symbol that gives us pride because the colors that we know and love when we were a kid are the colors that we see on the Mexican flag.
Q: When you hear people talk about the Mexican flag, you’re going to hear a lot of words like “authentic” and “traditional.” What is “traditional” about the Mexican flag?
A: Of course, everything we put forward as a country is based on our history. But we always try to keep something traditional and traditional in Mexican culture which we know is important.
The color palette is more vibrant than the American flag.
Q: How is the current Mexican flag different from the original flag?
A: Today, a lot of the things we put forward today are related to the new flag, but some, unfortunately, are not. Some of the colors I mentioned, they are not represented. You can’t see that on the old flag, but with that, it makes sense to keep a certain traditional colors on the new flag.
They tried to make it more colorful and modern when the new flag was created. But I’m sure it is still a true Mexican flag.
Q: Why was the new flag created?
A: I think that every country has to create new standards. And the Mexican flag is one of them. In the 1950s, the government changed a lot. So they wanted to change it from what we know it to what we know it as. In the end, we made it with the idea that maybe this is another symbol
