The great seal of New Mexico is a simple, yet historically rich, illustration of New Mexico’s foundation of cultural blending. Within the depiction, there are both Aztec legends and governmental frameworks represented: The Aztecs settled Mexico per their gods who told them to find the place where the eagle eats the serpent on a cactus. This origin story sits within the Bald Eagle’s wing. The meaning portrayed is that languages, traditions, and cultures will survive and thrive in New Mexico as a state within the republic of the United States. While its history is complex, New Mexico truly grows as it goes (crescit eundo) and is a living testament to cultural perseverance.
