Current Customs flag

The current Mexico Customs flags is the present-day National Flag according the "Ley sobre las características y el uso del Escudo, la Bandera e Himno Nacional", created by decree issued in the DOF of August 17, 1968.
The articles 14 and 15 of that Law stated:

Article 15.- The National Flag shall be hoisted everyday on the "oficinas de población", customs, captainships of port (capitanías de puerto) and international airports.

This Law was abrogated and replaced by the currently in effect Ley sobre el Escudo, la Bandera y el Himno Nacionales, published on the DOF on February 23, 1984, to come into effect a day later: Feb. 24, 1984.
Though this law did not modified the National Flag and Coat of Arms features established by its predecessor, since it was promulgated to clarify some details about the National Anthem, several articles were arranged:

Article 16. The National Flag shall be hoisted everyday on the buildings see of Powers of the Union, offices of the Migration Department, Customs, Capitanias de Puerto, International Airports; in the Diplomatic and Consular Representations abroad, and on the monumental hoist at the "Plaza de la Constitución" in the Republic's capital city.
