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.
