Note by editor:
The figure of the Vice-president came obsolete by means of the 1917 Constitution.

Vice-president of the Republic

[Vice-president of the Republic ensign (1912-1916)] 2:3 [Ensign no longer in use]
by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán, April 20, 2002

The 1912 General Ordinance of the Navy states in its Art. 1117 the flag of the Vice-president shall be quarterly green and red, with a white cross overall and on the center the national arms. The width of the cross is 1/9 the fly.

I am sure thet in Mexico there is not a flag for Vice president because since 1917 there is not Vice President (100% sure)And the President flag is not presicely for the ejecutive office is the flag for the supreme commander of the armed forces is the mexican flag but with 4 with stars in the green area( one vertical line) this is only used when the president is in a military act (about this info I am not 100% sure but if there is a presidential flag is not commonly used).

The current-in-effect 1917-Constitution promulgated by the president in turn, Venustiano Carranza, erradicated the Vice-president position. Then, in the case of president's absence or indisposition, the presidence will be occupied temporaly by the person appointed by the "Congreso de la Unión" (Congress of the Union), according the Constitutional articles 84º, 85º and 86º.

Vice-president of the Republic (1897-1911)

In 1897, a new system of Navy ensigns and flags was adopted. Nevertheless, none ensign was granted to the figure of the Vice-president.
