The flags that will be featured are those of Colorado, Rwanda, and San Marino.
The blue is meant to represent the skies, the gold stands for the sunshine enjoyed by the state, the white represents the snowcapped mountains and the red represents the red colored earth (from Spanish colorado, meaning “red”).
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.
The Colorado state flag is also incorporated into the design of Colorado's state highway markers.
The flag of Rwanda was adopted on October 25, 2001. The flag has four colors: blue, green, and two forms of yellow (standard yellow for the middle band and what the Pantone system calls "sun yellow" for the sun). The blue band represents happiness and peace, the yellow band symbolizes economic development, and the green band symbolizes the hope of prosperity. The sun represents enlightenment. The new flag represents national unity, respect for work, heroism, and confidence in the future. It was adopted to avoid connotations to the 1994 genocide.
The flag was designed by Alphonse Kirimobenecyo.
