Flag of New Mexico

Flag of New Mexico

The flag consists of a red sun symbol of the Zia on a field of yellow, representing the state's Native American heritage. The colors echo those of the Spanish explorers who came to New Mexico, combining the red and yellow of Spain with a sacred symbol of the Zia people. The four groups of rays in four directions symbolize the four points of the compass, four seasons, four times of day, and four stages of life.
