Arizona Flag History
Adopted: January 25, 1917; 101 years ago
The Arizona flag was designed in 1910 by Col. Charles W. Harris to be the flag of the Arizona Rifle Team. The flag was adopted as the official state flag in 1917 by Arizona's Third Legislature.
The flag of the state of Arizona shall be as follows:
"The lower half of the flag shall be a blue field; the upper half shall be divided into 13 equal segments, or rays, which shall start at the center on the lower line and continue to the edges of the flag, colored alternately light yellow or red, consisting of six yellow and seven red rays; in the center of the flag, superimposed, a copper-colored five-point star so placed that the points shall be one foot from the top of the flag and the lower points one foot from the bottom of the flag. The red and blue shall be of the same shades as the colors of the flag of the United States; the flag to have a four-foot hoist and six-foot fly, with a two-foot start, the same proportions to be observed for flags of other sizes. The flag represents the copper star of Arizona rising from a blue field in the face of a setting sun."
—Chapter 7, Session Laws of Arizona, 1917. Laws that govern the Arizona State Flag: A.R.S. § 41-851 State Colors; State Flag and A.R.S. § 13-3703 Abuse of venerated objects; classification. The official state colors, blue and gold, were approved by the Legislature on March 9, 1915.
