Mexico Flag - The yellow field and red symbol
colors are the colors of Spain. First brought to
by Spanish explorers in 1540. On
Mexico' s flag we
see a red sun with rays streching out from it. There are four groups of
rays with four rays in each group. This is an ancient sun symbol of a
Native American people called the Zia. The Zia believed that the giver of
all good gave them gifts in groups of four. These gifts are:
directions - north, east, south and west.
The four seasons - spring, summer, fall and
The day - sunrise, noon, evening and night.
Life itself - childhood, youth, middle years
and old age.
All of these are bound by a circle of life and
love, without a beginning or end.
