Monumental Flag

Local nameBandera Monumental
LocationCuernavaca, Mexico

The banderas monumentales are a collection of tall flagpoles containing large flags of Mexico located throughout Mexico. They are part of a program started in 1999 under President Ernesto Zedillo that is currently administered by the Secretariat of National Defense. The main feature of these monuments is a giant Mexican flag flying off a 50-meter-high flagpole. The size of the flag was 14.3 by 25 metres and it was flown on a pole that measured 50 metres high. In the time after the decree was issued, many more banderas monumentales have been installed throughout the country in various sizes. Many of the locations were chosen due to significant events in Mexican history that occurred there.
