We just learned about the Mexico State of Neuvo León.

Another Mexico State is Michoacán.

It's name means place of the fishermen.

The coat of arms has a fish at the top for the place of fishermen. On the left is a person on horseback for the famous General José María Morelos y Pavón.
On the right are three crowns for the history of the Purépecha empire.
The bottom left and right are for the workers and people of the state.
