New Mexico State Flags
In 1920, the Daughters for the American Revolution held a contest; the winner was Dr. Harry Mera, who designed today’s New Mexican flag. The yellow and red recognize the Habsburg family, whose conquistadors explored New Mexico’s territory. The symbol centered in the flag is the Zia sun. Four is a sacred number to the Zia people and the symbol has four sets of four elements (seasons, winds, directions and obligations).
We're proud to offer the New Mexico state flag in two different outdoor fabrics, including nylon for an New Mexico flag that flies in a light wind and an extra-tough polyester New Mexico flag designed to withstand the elements. Even our miniature 4 inch by 6 inch New Mexico flags mounted to a plastic dowel are perfect for classroom, special events, parades and more! Looking for something for a parade or indoor application? Our indoor fringed New Mexico flags feature luxurious gold fringe on 3 sides and a pole sleeve end for a clean look.
