Show your New Mexican pride with these weatherproof stickers! The flag of New Mexico features the Zia Sun symbol in red on a golden yellow background. The colours are in reference to the Cross of Burgundy Flag that was used during the Spanish Empire in the New World. The Zia people are one of the indigineous tribes of New Mexico and part of the Pueblo community. The sun represents many things to them, it is mainly representative of the circle of life. Four points on the Zia sun represents the four cardinal directions, the four times of day, the four stages of life, and the four seasons. The flag was designed in 1920 by Harry Mera and was officially adopted by the state in 1925.
