Yes, I am still waiting....................

 

Here is more about the Mexican flag, i.e. coat of arms:

 


The Mexican Coat of Arms depicts the founding of Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital. The Aztec god, Huitzilopochtli, told the nomadic tribe that they should settle where they found an eagle devouring a snake, perched on a cactus, growing from a rock in the middle of a lake.

Yes - is this going to be a discussion of coats of arms in general?  Because if it is I will move it to the General/Off Topic forum.

I like ones with rampant lions. I believe there are special names for the colours used in heraldry too.
