Pantitlán

Pantitlán - Metro Line 1, Line 5, Line 9 and Line A

This station’s icon represents flags that the Aztecs placed in Texcoco Lake (the lake that surrounded the Aztec’s capital of Tenochtitlan) to aid navigation. The winds in that area were so strong that canoes would end up capsized; the Aztecs places flags there to warn the canoes not to get too close. The name Pantitlán means “between flags”.
