from Arizona

(words by Margaret Rowe Clifford, music by Maurice Blumenthal)

Come to this land of sunshine
To this land where life is young.
Where the wide, wide world is waiting,
The songs that will now be sung.
Where the golden sun is flaming
Into warm, white shining day,
And the sons of men are blazing
Their priceless right of way.

Sing the song that's in your hearts
Sing of the great Southwest,
Thank God, for Arizona
In splendid sunshine dressed.
For thy beauty and thy grandeur,
For thy regal robes so sheen
We hail thee Arizona
Our Goddess and our queen.

The Arizona State Flag
The flag was adopted in 1917. The 13 rays of red and gold in the top half of the flag represent both the 13 original colonies and the rays of the setting sun. The red is the same shade of red found in the US flag. Red and gold were the colors carried by Coronado's Spanish expedition. The lower half of the flag is the same Liberty Blue found in the US Flag. There is a copper star in the center of the flag to symbolize AZ as the largest copper producing state.
