The New Mexico State Flag
The yellow background and red symbols are the colors of Queen Isabella of Spain. The "Zia" is an ancient Native American depiction of the sun. The four groups of four rays represent gifts from the creator. The gifts are: four directions--north, east, south and west; four seasons--spring, summer, fall and winter; four parts of a day--sunrise, noon, evening and night; and four parts of life--childhood, youth, middle years and old age. They are bound by a circle representing life.
