Old Dogs and New Tricks
Woof, baby…this ol’ New Mexican just learned something new.
I knew the the Zia on our state’s flag was a Native American symbol representing the sun. What I didn’t know is there were meanings going far deeper than that.
I was idly Googling my homestate and came across this from the Grants/Cibola County Chamber of Commerce website.
So there you go! Our simple, elegant flag with a complexity of meaning. I do love that about my Fair New Mexico.
According to Wikipedia: “New Mexico has the best-designed flag of any U.S. state, territory or Canadian province, according to a 2001 survey by the North American Vexillological Association.”

That is really beautiful…
