Mexico emblem VM#15

Because if I’m going to talk about Mexican stuff, it’s important to talk about Mexico’s emblem elements.

*First we have the eagle, in a combative stance devouring an snake, holding it by its talon and its beak.
*The nopal on which the eagle stands; *The nopal bears some of its fruits (tunas)
*The pedestal, on which the nopal grows, immersed in the Aztec symbol for water Oak and laurel leaves encircling the eagle cluster; tied together with a ribbon with the Mexican flag’s colors.

If you didn’t know, the coat of arms recalls the founding of Tenochtitlan, now called Mexico City. The legend says that Huitzilopochtli asked the Tenochtitlan people to look for an eagle devouring a snake, perched on an prickly pear cactus, that would be on the city he chosed for them to live.

      Yep, the city was built over a river, people who gave them that place thought they would ran away, scared from the water and serpents, but they actually coexisted with serpents, and they knew how to build over water, after long time, the city became one of the most powerful of Mexico
