Flag Waving.

I have misplaced my Mexican flag. I am sure I have flown it in Arizona, but maybe not. I bought it years ago in Mexico and it hung in our garage in Juneau. I am sure that is not proper flag etiquette, but it was meant more as a reminder to me than an allegiance to the Nation. I would not be offended if I spotted Ol' Glory in a Mexican garage, as long as it was in good shape and being treated honorably.

There is a flag store that is kinda on my way home today. I have email the Flagman, and he has several sizes of Mexican Flags, so I will go and get another flag.

I look up the Mexican Flag on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Mexico.

Here is the National Anthem. Is it me, or does the music, not the language or lyrics sound Russian. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG94Eb7CdYQ

There is some very interesting information on there. The Oath to the Flag and the Salute to the Flag are lovely pieces of poetry.


  1. I would gladly send you all the Mexican flags that you wanted!!!

  2. I have always liked the anthem, but the music is more Verdi to me than Borodin. As for the lyrics, though original, they find a good deal of their inspiration in La Marseillaise.

  3. Leslie- besides my obsession with Mexico maps and books, I might just add Flags to the fray as well.

    Steve- Wow! that is way over my head. Very impressive. But does it sound Soviet to you or not?

  4. Sounds Soviet to me Chrissy! That anthem's much different than I would have expected.

  5. Hey, Keith found our Mexican Flag. We are putting it up as I write. Keith convinced me to keep flying our US Flag and to hang the Mexico Flag next to it, only slightly lower as protocol calls for. Now I feel better that it is up.
