Private Swap - Mexico

The Flag of Mexico is a vertical tricolor of green, white, and red with the national coat of arms charged in the center of the white stripe. The current flag was adopted in 1968, but the overall design has been used since 1821, when the First National Flag was created.

Red, white, and green are the colors of the national liberation army in Mexico. The central emblem is the Aztec pictogram for Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City), the center of their empire. Throughout history, the flag has changed four times, as the design of the coat of arms and the length-width ratios of the flag have been modified. However, the coat of arms has had the same features throughout: an eagle, holding a serpent in its talon, is perched on top of a prickly pear cactus; the cactus is situated on a rock that rises above a lake.

Private Swap - Vanuatu

scan0034

Vanuatu is an island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean. The archipelago, which is of volcanic origin, is some 1,750 km east of northern Australia. It consists of approximately 82 relatively small, geologically newer islands of volcanic origin, with about 800 miles north to south distance between the outermost islands. 14 of Vanuatu's islands have surface areas of more than 100 sq km.

There are several active volcanoes in Vanuatu, including Lopevi, as well as several underwater ones. Vanuatu’s growing population is placing increased pressure on local resources for agriculture, grazing, hunting, and fishing. Some 90 percent of Ni-Vanuatu households fish and consume fish, which has caused intense fishing pressure near villages and the depletion of near-shore fish species.
