What do Scotland and Mexico possibly have in common (apart from common humanity that is?) Well one thing is the Golden Eagle. We may think it’s our national bird, but Mexico actually has it depicted on their flag. In any event, why would we not be grateful to the country that gave us chocolate, chillies and corn? What would life be like without them? So, the gift of a national tartan seems like a small reward.
The colours are taken from Mexico’s national flag which is made up three vertical stripes. The left, green stripe stands for hope, the middle white stripe represents purity, and the right red stripe represents the blood of those who died fighting for Mexico’s independence. Viva Zapata! Viva Mexico!
