The Zia Symbol

The New Mexico flag has a simple, attractive design. There are two colors: red and yellow. In the center of the flag, there is a Native American symbol. The symbol consists of a red circle with rays that point in four directions.
The symbol was created by Native Americans from the Zia Pueblo. The symbol represents the sun, which is sacred to the Zia people. It also uses the number four. Four is the sacred number of the Zia. The number four represents:
  • the four points of the compass (north, south, east, and west)
  • the four seasons of the year (spring, summer, fall, and winter)
  • the four periods of each day (morning, noon, evening, and night)
  • the four seasons of life (childhood, youth, adulthood, and old age) and
  • the four sacred obligations one must develop (a strong body, a clear mind, a pure spirit, and a devotion to the welfare of others)
The symbol is used not only on the state flag, but also in the design of the New Mexico State Capitol.
