Michoacán by jabask.png|My flag of Michoacán features the colors of gold and red, for the flag of the capital, Morelia, plus the Spanish colonial heritage. The central charge is a stylized butterfly, an old symbol of Michoacán, in the style of native art. The swallowtail shape of the flag is both a reference to marine heritage (the state lies on the Pacific coast) and forms an M for Michoacán. jabask. 2017.

Revision as of 23:20, April 4, 2020

The flag of the State of Michoacán is, like most current Mexican state flags, the coat of arms centered on a white field.

The coat of arms of Michoacán is divided into four sections. The upper dexter field is red with a statue of José María Morelos, one of the most important figures in the war of independence. The upper sinister section shows three prehispanic crowns, which symbolize the three kingdoms that existed in the original territory of Michoacán, also on a red field.

The lower dexter section is charged with a factory, symbolizing the industry and advancement of the modern-day state. Lastly, the lower sinister field shows an image of the University of Tiripetio, considered to be the first University in the Americas, founded in 1540.

The shield has a blue border charged with sixteen stars. The motto on the bottom reads Heredamos Libertad - Legaremos Justicia Social ("We inherited freedom - We will bequeath social justice").
