[Former SDN's Emblem] by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán, November 1, 2002.

The official emblem of the Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional (SDN) used until December 2000, was based on the National Tricolor, where the Coat of Arms has been replaced by a golden ring charged with a green gold-outlined map of Mexico.
Four golden five-pointed stars, aligned vertically over the green field, represent the high command, that is the Secretary of the National Defense; finally, the initials "SDN" in capital golden letters, aligned also vertically over the red field.
