Mexico Flag

James asks…

Notice the similarity among the Mexico, Italy, and Ireland flags?

Can anyone explain why they are similar in term of the same order of color green, white, and red?

The only thing that distinguish Mexico flag from the other two flags is that Mexico flag has a picture of and eagle in the middle.

Please, be as descriptive as possible.
When I said :”the similarity” I mean the political representation.

Thank you for the correction about the Ireland flag‘s colors.

Tijuana answers:

Well, the Italian flag and the Irish share the same colors and tones. But the Mexican flag is similar to the other twos but with strong colors. Very strong and bright green and red. In the center has the shield of the eagle. It is a Imperial Eagle and it is standing over a cactus and is eating a snake or serpent. We have a legend in Mexico that they say, the Mexicans were looking for the land to settle and the signal from Quetzalcoatl was that they were going to see in the middle of the lake a small portion of land and cactus and on top the eagle devouring a serpent. So they keep walking and finally they found what their God told them. And Tenochtitlan was founded in the same site, so that’s why we have our Eagle in the middle of our flag in the white part. The green means our land, the white the eternal snow that covers the volcanoes and the red the blood of our heroes who died for our motherland. I hope that I help you.
