The Meaning of the Arizona State Flag

The meaning behind the design of the Arizona state flag 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.
