Colorado - Flag Facts
Colorado's state flag was originated by the Denver chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution; Andrew Carlisle Carson designed it. The design was approved by the general assembly on April 5, 1911, and it became the official state flag on June 5, 1911. The flag specifications seemed clear enough when adopted but modification to the legislation was required in 1929 and in 1964. The flag took its present form with the law effective March 31, 1964.
The state flag Carson designed—a red, white, blue, and gold banner—marks the history and resources of Colorado, and the colors represent environmental features of the state.The two bold, blue stripes depict her clear blue sky and is the same color as in the blue field of the national flag of the United States.
- The white stripe in the center stands for the snow-capped mountains. It also symbolized Colorado’s vast stores of silver, which have made it the richest silver-mining state in the Union.
- The red C in Colorado’s flag, the same color as the red in the national flag of the United States, has several meanings, and it provides a reminder of the state’s cultural and geographical roots. Colorado is known as the Centennial State or the Columbine State, and was ruled by Spain for many years, recalling the Spanish word colorado, which means “red.”
- The gold disc inside the red C represents both the year-round sunshine and the gold buried in the mountains.
- The cords and tassels—one silver and one gold—which hang entwined from the flagstaff, represent the rich mines found in the state.
