What Does Our Logo Symbolize?

Our logo is based on the state flag of Arizona which “represents the copper star of Arizona rising from a blue field in the face of a setting sun” (quote from legislation). The 13 gold and red rays represent the sun setting over the western desert and the original 13 colonies. Red and gold colors were also carried by Coronado’s Spanish expedition in search of the Seven Cities of Cibola in 1540. The center star signifies copper production. Arizona produces more copper than any other state in the country and one of its nicknames is the Copper State. The field of blue is the same liberty blue as the United States flag. Blue and old gold are also Arizona’s official state colors. For more information about the state symbols of Arizona, visit the Arizona page of the State Symbols USA website.
