The Mexican flag emoji is officially called Mexico. As its popular name suggests, the emoji depicts the country’s flag: a vertical tricolor of green, white, and red with the national coat of arms (a golden eagle eating a rattlesnake atop a prickly pear) in the center. The emoji was first added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.

As with other country-based flag emoji, the Mexican flag emoji represents the nation of Mexico, often for the purpose of positive self-identification.

Who uses 🇲🇽 - Mexico emoji ?

The Mexican flag emoji is used widely online by people from Mexico or with Mexican heritage to identify or celebrate the country of Mexico and its culture, including its food, people, athletes, and unique traditions. A social-media post or text message about Mexican food, say tamales, may be tagged with a Mexican flag emoji for emphasis, or a person watching Mexico’s national football team may string together several Mexican flag emoji to cheer them on.

Because of xenophobic and racist remarks US President Donald Trump has made toward Mexico and Mexicans, the Mexican flag emoji is sometimes used to symbolize anti-Trump resistance, particularly when it comes to the topic of immigration. Pro-Trump, anti-immigrant internet users may use the Mexican flag emoji disparagingly. Using the Mexican flag emoji together with the US flag emoji depicts union between the two countries.

On unsupported platforms, the emoji will show up as the letters MX, the country’s abbreviation.
