Quetzalcoatl. One of the most important Aztec deities in Mesopotamia religion. The creator God who brought wind and rains the "quetzal-feathered serpent," was a prominent part of Central Mexican history from approximately the time of Teotihuacán to the collapse of the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlán in 1521.

Centuries later, Quetzalcoatl remains a cultural influence. This past Friday, adidas and the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) revealed the home jersey to be worn by the Mexican national team at the 2022 World Cup, taking place in Qatar from November 21 to December 18.

Inspired by Quetzalcoatl, who stands out with its neck feathers and serpent's body, symbolizing the duality of human nature that was so characteristic of pre-Hispanic cultures, design also returns to its essence, the color green, which identifies Mexico throughout the world.

The design also features a feathered headdress called a “copilli” in Spanish, which in Ancient Mexican culture, represented religious and noble power, lending spiritual strength and valor to anyone who wears it.
