State Tartan

State of Colorado Image  
 Tartan: The state tartan is comprised of a pattern and colors that symbolize Colorado's beauty and history. The blue symbolizes the state's clear blue skies, while the green represents the pine and spruce that are so abundant in Colorado's mountains. The contrasting colors of lavender and white are symbolic of the snow-capped granite mountain peaks. The gold and red in the pattern signify the wealth of mineral resources in the state and the red sandstone soil. The state tartan was adopted on March 3, 1997, by an act of the General Assembly.
