Majestic, it dominates the vast mountains and meadows over which it spreads its wings. National symbol that goes back to the legend of the founding of Mexico-Tenochtitlan, where the eagle perched on a cactus devours a snake. For the Aztecs, the eagle is the disguise of the sun, "life-giving star and dispenser of light." When taking flight, its outstretched wings symbolize a cross that delimits the four cosmic directions and constitutes by itself the axis of the world. In Mexico, the golden eagle lives mainly in the northern states.
