The end of World War I and the Russian Civil War gave the Estonian forces the opportunity to declare their independence from Soviet Russia and the nobility of Livonia and Curland who formed the Baltische Landeswehr in 1918. Although Estonia would become a Socialist Soviet Republic during World War II, February 24 marks the ignition of its life as an independent nation.
The piece is composed of nine swallows made in the particular style of each artist, superimposed on the phrase Vadabus Liberty that Atole wrote within a sky blue field. For Estonians, the swallow is the national bird, symbolizing freedom and the ability to know the world without forgetting your home.
The Mural can be seen in the Republican Army corner with November 20 in Queretaro and has been recognized in Estonia as part of the gift that Mexico made to the Baltic nation.
