This 3' x 5' Polyester Flag is made from a light-weight but durable polyester with an open weave that reduces fabric stress and resists high winds. It is double-stitched all the way around and features brass grommets for hanging, attached to the flag with a reinforced header cloth for extra durability. The polyester fabric looks like a coarse cotton, resists fraying and is designed for indoor or outdoor use. This features a single-sided print in bright, vivid colors. Single-sided prints are printed on one side with a bleed through of about 90% color intensity on the back side; which means the graphics can still be seen but will be reversed.
When Colorado entered the Union in 1876 it was known as the Centennial State or the Columbine State, so the red C can stand for either of those names or for the state itself. For many years Colorado was ruled by Spain, the name meaning red. Like Arizona, the red and yellow recall the Spanish colors. The Rocky Mountain Columbine is blue, white, and gold so these colors are reflected in the flag. The gold can also represent the founding of Denver following the gold rush of 1858.
