New Mexico - Flag Facts
The current New Mexico flag was suggested in 1920. The Daughters of the American Revolution requested that a design be adopted that illustrates the distinctive character of the State of New Mexico. A design contest was won by Dr. Harry Mera, a physician and archeologist from Santa Fe.
The design is a red “Zia” (an ancient symbol of the sun of the Zia Indian Pueblo) on a yellow background. These colors were chosen because of the Spanish influence. The design is simple and easily recognizable and replicates the Zia belief that the number four brings basic harmony to the universe.
There are four rays radiating from the center circle (indicating life and love without a beginning or end) and each ray consists of four points:
- The four seasons - spring, summer, fall and winter
- The four directions - north, east, south and west
- The four stages of life - infancy, youth, adulthood and old age
- The four sacred obligations - develop a strong body, a clear mind, a pure spirit, and a devotion to the welfare of others
