Arizona - Flag Facts
Arizona's distinctive state flag, known as The Copper Star Flag, was adopted in 1917. Since Arizona was the largest producer of copper in the nation, the copper star was placed in the flag’s center and symbolizes the importance of minerals in the state’s economy. The lower half of the flag is a blue field of the same Old Glory blue as the United States flag, and the upper half consists of thirteen alternate red and gold rays, suggesting the Western setting sun over the desert. The colors of the rays were also the colors carried by Coronado’s Spanish expedition in search of the Seven Cities of Cibola in 1540, and signify the period of Spanish dominion over Arizona. It has been said the number represents either the 13 original United States or the 13 counties that made up Arizona in 1911, when the flag was designed.
The birth of the Arizona State Flag can be traced back to the 1910 National Rifle Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, before Arizona officially entered the Union. Members of the Arizona Rifle Team noticed that all other “state” rifle teams carried flags or emblems. The Arizona team had neither. A flag was designed for the team in 1911 by Charles W. Harris. First priorities for the design were that it contain historical values and that its colors should reflect those values. In 1912, Colonel Charles W. Harris designed a state flag similar to the flag he designed for the Arizona Rifle Team. This flag was adopted as the official flag of Arizona by the Arizona State Legislature on February 27, 1917, despite numerous dissenting votes and then Governor Campbell’s refusal to sign the bill.
The battleship Arizona, later sunk at Pearl Harbor in 1941, received one of the first Arizona flags made.
