The top half consists of thirteen alternating yellow and red rays which represent America's thirteen original colonies. Because Arizona is a western state, the rays show a setting sun. The colors of the rays refer to yellow and red in the Spanish flags carried by Coronado when he came to Arizona in the sixteenth century.
