The Denver Flag is the official flag of the city of Denver in Colorado. Designed by Northern High School student Margaret Orbeck and adopted in 1926. A white zigzag stripe horizontally separates a red square below a blue background above it, where a yellow circle is concentrated, and together a stylized image of the sun in the blue sky above the mountains forms snow. Yellow symbolizes gold in the hills of the state and red is the color that the word Colorado refers to. The center position of the circle symbolizes Denver’s central position within the state. The white zigzag is a symbol of Native American heritage in Colorado.
