  • The three colors of Mexico’s flag hold deep significance for the country and its citizens: green represents hope and victory, white stands for the purity of Mexican ideals and red brings to mind the blood shed by the nation’s heroes. Mexico is the third-largest country in Latin America after Brazil and Argentina. At the beginning of the 21st century, Mexico's population surpassed 100 million. Mexico has the largest population of Spanish speakers in the world. With almost 25 million residents, Mexico City is one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. Mexico has the world’s second-highest number of Catholics after Brazil. At nearly 2,000 miles, the border between Mexico and the United States is the second-longest in the world, after the border between the United States and Canada. Mexico is located in an area known as the Pacific “Ring of Fire.” This region, one of Earth’s most dynamic tectonic areas, is characterized by active volcanoes and frequent seismic activity. Tequila, a liquor for which Mexico is famous, is made from the native blue agave plant. Named after the city where it originated, Tequila is primarily manufactured near Jalisco

Her sister was raped by an employee of the government, and Pancho Villa killed him. He was running from the federal troops for 22 years. He murdered several landowners, and thus he gained the respect and admiration of the workers. His name became so famous that he was blamed for every major crime that was committed. He was known as the friend of the poor, because of his robin hood-like actions in favor of the oppressed farmers.

He recruited an army formed by farmers, mostly indigenous from the state of Morelos, and he joined the Mexican Revolution in 1910, screaming “Tierra y libertad!” (land and freedom). When the revolution ended, Zapata found that there was still a lot of injustice against the farmer class, so he continued his guerrilla activities. He is considered one of the most famous Mexican people, and is still a hero among the farmers.
