I have removed the claim that Campeche has a border with Belize. I have seen a few maps (usually of low resolution and rather sloppily made) which seem to depict this, but maps in good detailed atlases confirm that the north/south borderline of Campeche and Q.R. is somewhat west of the n/s borderline of Belize & Guatemala. Quintana Roo is the only Mexican state with a border to Belize. -- Infrogmation (talk) 19:42, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

I would suggest looking at this INEGI map of Campeche, which shows the boundary with Belize clearly. You could also consult Google Maps; or, look at the INEGI page giving basic data on Campeche. Spacepotato (talk) 01:58, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Hm. If that's so, then the border between Campeche and Q.R. has been changed since the 1970s. Interesting. It would be good to know when and how it was moved. -- Infrogmation (talk) 02:50, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
A quick search turned up Ongoing Borderline Disputes in Southeast Mexico, 2006 article on land and boundary is disputed by the states! -- Infrogmation (talk) 02:55, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Already mentioned (without details) at List of territorial disputes. I've come across some other online articles mentioning this (which has generated a good deal of friction in some of the towns in the disputed area) but no additional substantial details not in the above external link. -- Infrogmation (talk) 03:10, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Flag[edit]

There is no official state flag, according to the state constitution, chapter 2, art. 5.. Spacepotato (talk) 20:45, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
