The Virgin of Zapopan is also known as Our Lady of Expectation. She is also referred to as La Generala or the Zapopanita. In 1734, she was proclaimed Patroness against storms and lightning (natural disasters) .[2] The statue stays in Guadalajara from June 13 to October 12.

After Mexico became independent in 1821, the Virgin was proclaimed Patroness of the State of Jalisco.[1] She was canonically crowned on 18 January 1921, in a ceremony that included presenting the keys to the city of Guadalajara.
