Today is the 136th anniversary of the day Colorado became the 38th state, August 1, 1876.
The name of our beautiful state comes from the red colored earth that all around.
“The colors of the state flag symbolize certain geographical features of Colorado. The gold stands for the abundant sunshine that our state enjoys. The white represents the snowcapped mountains while the blue stands for our clear blue skies. The red represents the ruddy color of much of our state’s earth.”-Colorado.gov webiste
