The flag of the state of Colorado consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width; the top and bottom stripes are blue, and the middle stripe white. On top of these stripes sits a circular red "C", filled with a golden disk. The blue is meant to represent the skies, the gold is said to either stand for the sunshine enjoyed by the state or the gold mined traditionally in the state of Colorado, the white represents the snowcapped mountains and the red represents the ruddy colored earth (from Spanish colorado, meaning "ruddy" as well as "colored").

The flag was designed by Andrew Carlisle Johnson in 1911 and adopted by the Colorado General Assembly on June 5 of the same year. In a 2001 survey of 72 state, provincial and territorial flags in North America conducted by the North American Vexillological Association, Colorado's flag was ranked number 16.
