(Mar 02, 2008) An amendment to Mexico's Law on the Coat of Arms, the Flag, and the National Anthem that was passed in January of 2008 mandates that under no circumstances may a reproduction of the coat of arms of the nation be altered or changed. Although the coat of arms may be used on the vehicles that the President of the Republic uses, as well as on the official stationery of the federal, state, and municipal agencies, its reproduction must be strictly in keeping with the law.
