Colorado State Flag
The state flag of Colorado was designed by Andrew Carlisle Carson. Officially adopted on June 5, 1911, the Colorado State Flag utilizes elegant simplicity to evoke a number of significant meanings. The field consists of three stripes, two blue and one white. The blue is meant to symbolize Colorado's clear blue skies as well as the state flower, the columbine. The white stripe across the middle is said to represent the state's famous snow-capped mountains, while the red of the C (which stands for Colorado) reflects the color of most of the state's soil. The gold disc in the center of the C is meant to signify the state's history in gold mining and ample sunshine.
