The shield shows, from top to bottom, a golden star, a silver ribbon that reads Tierra y Libertad ("Land and liberty"), and a cornstalk. The shield has a border with the revolutionary motto La tierra volverá a quienes la trabajan con sus manos ("The land will return to those who work on it with their hands"), a phrase by Emiliano Zapata. The coat of arms represents the revolutionary ideals by Emiliano Zapata and his fight for better living conditions for his people.

The Flag of Morelos is composed by the Aztec glyph of the capital city and green, not only for its forest's natural wealth but also for its agriculture. By Ricardo Vazoli, 2016.
The current flag of Morelos has a claim on it: terra y libertad - land and freedom. I wanted to display both by creating a wide sky and by making the mountainous terrain a central element of the flag. I also took the star from the seal and emphasized it even more as a symbol for a bright future. Chulz55. 2017.
