Uniter Farm Workers symbol - In 1962 César asked his cousin, Manuel, to design a flag. Cásar wanted an Aztec eagle on the flag, and Manuel adapted the design in a symbol to inspire courage to the farm workers. "A symbol is an important thing, that is why we chose an Aztec eagle," Chavez said. "It gives pride. When people see it they know it means dignity."
