New Mexico State Flags
The New Mexico State flag features a meaningful design which recognizes the people and origins of the “Land of Enchantment”. The New Mexico flag displays a red sun with four groups of four rays stretching from it. The symbol is the ancient representation of the sun by the Zia, a Native American people who now reside at Zia Pueblo, a reservation 35 miles north of Albuquerque. The Zia believe the giver of all good gave gifts in groups of four: four seasons, four directions, four times of day and four cycles of life. The colors, red and gold, reflect the colors of Queen Isabella brought to New Mexico by Spanish Conquistadors. The New Mexico Flag was designed by archeologist Dr. Harry Mera and adopted in 1925.
Our New Mexico state flags are available in several varieties including two outdoor fabrics. Our New Mexico Beacon Nylon outdoor flag, a Carrot-Top exclusive, is the most versatile New Mexico flag. These durable flags have the advantage of being strong yet lightweight. This enables them to dry quickly and beautifully sway in the slightest breeze. Our Patriarch outdoor New Mexico flag, also a Carrot-Top exclusive, is the best quality polyester flag available. These state flags are crafted from tough, skillfully woven polyester yet have the texture and feel of cotton. They are able to stand up to high winds and are the best choice for coastal areas and extreme weather.
The indoor New Mexico state flag features exquisitely stitched, well-crafted nylon and is finished with a lined pole sleeve along the left side. Plush gold fringe accents the remaining sides. Our miniature 4”x6” and mini 8”x12’ New Mexico flags are made of polyester and rayon and come mounted on a black plastic staff with a plastic spearhead. Miniature flags are perfect for gifts and keepsakes.
