Arizona State Flag

The History of Our Flag

The Arizona state flag was designed with our heritage in mind. The red and gold are for the Spanish who were our first visitors. The 13 gold and red rays are for the original 13 United States colonies. The design of these colors represents the rays of an Arizona sunset. The star is copper because this is our state's most important natural resource. The blue at the bottom is the color from our national flag.
