Mexican Flag Holiday 2021

Year: 2021 / Client: Mexican Consulate at Salt Lake City / Tools: InDesign, Photoshop

On 24 February, Mexico celebrates their Flag Day, an official day to observe the importance of the National Flag as one of the strongest symbols of the Mexican identity. To commemorate it, I created an illustration that evoques the historical events that shaped the Flag that is used to this day, while sticking to the 4:7 proportions, the National colours and the Coat of Arms.

The final product is a mosaic that contains abstractions of key historical events of national prominence, with colour gradients inspired by the Mexican Muralist movement of the early 20th century.
