The Mexican bear is dressed in large green leaves. This symbolises the tropical vegetation in large parts of Mexico. We can see the wide landscape through bushes and leaves. It's the landscape the Aztecs were dreaming of when immigrating into Mexico. Through mythology the wandering Aztec people were predicted to settle where an eagle fights with a snake in the middle of a lake. That's where the Aztecs founded today's Mexico City. We can see the lake in a valley surrounded by mountains and volcanoes. The bear is wearing a sun as a mask. It's a smiling sun shining very brightly. In Mexican mythology the sun as a circle is a holy symbol.
Sun, trees, leaves, water, sky and mountains are symbols of freedom, tolerance and fraternity. The mussels and fishes stand for luck, harvest and fertility.
