Buy Arizona Flags from Vispronet
Our Arizona state flags can withstand long-term use indoors and outdoors. This is because our flags are made from durable, tear-resistant Outdoor Flag Polyester. This material is easy to print on and is knitted to endure changing weather. This polyester material is heavier duty compared to the cheap flags often bought in stores. No matter if it is windy, rainy, or snowy, the material will not rip. We print the Arizona flag on the material using a dye sublimation method, which infuses the ink into the fabric, creating striking colors that will not wash or peel off. Our Arizona state flags are printed in the standard single-reverse layout, which means that the design is printed on one side and the reverse image bleeds through to the other side, saving you money on printing.

The Meaning of the Arizona State Flag
The meaning behind the design is a little different from the flags of other southern US states. The flags of other states, such as Alabama and Florida, had largely been derived from banners they had flown as Confederate states during the Civil War. In contrast, the Arizona state flag was derived from the environment of Arizona itself.
The state flag of Arizona is made up of several elements:
- A copper-colored star
- A series of red and gold stripes
- A blue field
The top half of the Arizona flag has the red and gold stripes arrayed in a sunburst pattern. The bottom half is the blue field. In the center sits the copper star.
The way the stripes are laid out is meant to suggest the sunset. Red and gold for the stripe colors brings to mind the colors carried by Coronado and other Spanish explorers as they mapped out the area that would later become Arizona.
The blue bottom half of the flag is meant to either draw parallels to a sunset over the ocean or remind the viewer of the blue field of the flag of the United States, which it is the same color as.
The star, often shown in a copper color, is meant to represent Arizona as the largest producer of copper in the United States. When the Arizona State Flag is manufactured, however, the star often ends up an orange-red color, further cementing the sunset imagery.
The History of the Arizona State Flag
When Arizona became a state in 1912, it didn’t have a flag. The design for the Arizona flag was created by the adjutant general of the Arizona National Guard, Charles W. Harris. Harris designed the flag for the Arizona National Guard rifle team, who had no flag at the time. The team used the flag during the national matches held at Camp Perry in Ohio.
The first version of Harris’s flag was sewn by Nancy Hayden, wife of Carl Hayden, who served as one of Arizona’s first representatives to Congress: he would hold various Congressional positions for over 50 years.
The Arizona flag designed by Harris and sewn up by Nancy Hayden would be adopted by the third meeting of the Arizona state legislature, who passed its adoption into law on February 27, 1917. It remains Arizona’s state flag to this day.
Symbols & Colors of the Arizonian Flag
What does each section of the Arizona flag mean? The bright colors and design of the flag represent the state in different ways:
Red and Yellow: The top section resembles a bright sunshine setting over the desert. This is supposed to reference the picturesque setting of the state. There are 13 interchanging red and yellow rays to represent the original 13 colonies of America.
Copper Star: The star is specifically copper colored to showcase the state's production of the copper element. Arizona produces the most copper out of all 50 states.
Blue: The blue section in the bottom of the Arizona state flag is the same color used in the American flag, often referred to as "Liberty Blue". Blue and gold are also the state colors of Arizona.
