Colorado State Flag – June 5, 1911

On this day, June 5, 1911, the Colorado General Assembly adopted its current flag, designed by Andrew Carlisle Johnson in the same year. The blue stripes represent beautiful Colorado skies, the white stripe signifies the snow-capped mountains and the red depicts the red-colored earth.  The gold disc represents sunshine and/or traditional gold mining in the state.  Like the state flags of Arizona and New Mexico, the Colorado flag is one of the more modern designs.
