This day is an official recognition to the members of the Navy-Navy Secretariat of Mexico, who provide security and protection in Mexico’s seas for the promotion of national maritime development. But the official date to honor the elements of the Seminar was established in 1991 by presidential decree on November 23 as Day of the Navy of Mexico, in commemoration of the heroic deed of the Captain of Frigate Pedro Sainz de Baranda, who on 23 November 1825 achieved the surrender of the last redoubt of Spanish troops in Mexican territory.
Currently, the Secretariat of the Navy Armada of Mexico carries out various events with exhibitions and activities where families can learn more about this institution that safeguards the coasts of the country.
