State Flag

State of Colorado Image  
 Flag:  Colorado's flag was designed by Andrew Carlisle Johnson.  The blue stripes and the red "C" are of the same colors of blue and red that are found on the United States flag.  The colors of the flag symbolize Colorado's geographical features: the gold symbolizes the state's abundant sunshine; the white represents snow-capped mountains; the blue symbolizes clear blue skies; and the red represents the color of much of the state's soil.  The flag was adopted on June 5, 1911, by an act of the General Assembly.
