Description

Pack of 10 Vintage Unused US Postage stamps of the: 13c New Mexico State Flag stamp of 1976 Issued February 23, 1976 Scott catalog #: 1679 When New Mexico became a state in 1912, the first state flag was a blue field with a small U.S. flag in the top-left corner. The state seal was in the bottom-right corner, with New Mexico running from the top-left to bottom-right corners. But a better alternative was soon offered. in 1920, the Daughters of the American Revolution suggested a design to better represent New Mexico's unique heritage. They proposed using an ancient symbol for the sun found on a Zia Pueblo water jar in the late 19th century. The resulting flag has a circle that represents the unending cycles of love & life connecting the four points of the sun. The Spanish heritage in the region is acknowledged by using the traditional family colors of Queen Isabella of Spain - red for the design, set on a yellow background. These stamps are one of a set of 50 different stamps printed on a sheet of stamps depicting the State Flags of each of the 50 United States & are usually sold as a complete set.
