Flag of New Mexico
The flag of New Mexico consists of a yellow background with the red sun of the Zia Pueblo Indians. The colors of the flag represent the Spanish colonial period. They can still be found today on the flag of Spain. The sun consists of a red circle connecting all four rays. They stand for the cardinal points (north, south, east, west) and the day (sunrise, noon, evening, night). Also, for the four seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) and life (child, youth, adult, old man).
The flag was introduced in 1925 and the name Mexico comes from the country Mexico.
