Hey cool. I always like seeing that flag. If you have the time google the history of the flag and its symbology. Kinda cool. Angela and I have toured 27 of the 31 Mexican states in a motorhome. Took us 3 months of the year times four years. Amazing journey and Country.

Cinco de Mayo

Outside of the city of Puebla, Cinco de Mayo is not a holiday in Mexico, and is generally not celebrated. May 5 has nothing to do with Mexican Independence Day (on September 16).

it'd probably be better to pair/post the US flag with the hyped-up and misunderstood 1862 battle at Puebla, for our having turned the event into a major US promotional opportunity for tequila/margarita sales on the day better referred to as Cinco de Drinko.

No, Cinco de Mayo Is Not Mexican Independence Day ? Here's What It Is - NBC News
Puebla is an amazing city. Amazing spanish architecture and perfectly preserved. Here is another shot of the flag in Puebla with Angela dressing up the picture.

And a great place for churches too. Seems like there was one for every block.
