The Coat of Arms of Mexico has been an important symbol of Mexican politics and culture for centuries. It was originally seen designed on the Cronica Mexicayotl as more of a "ying yang" or "burning water" symbol, but Spanish invaders tweaked the design to fit European Heraldic christian elements, which is seen on the mexican flag. This design is a return to the original version with the feathered serpent god Quetzalcōhuātl, creator of humanity. The eagle was a representation of the sun god Huitzilopochtli. The Cronica Mexicayotl is a chronicle of the Aztec empire that was written in the Nahuatl language (which ive written in the Nahuatl language on the scroll).
