Flag of Albuquerque
Adopted February 1969 (?)
Designed by Dr. Richard T. Vann
Proportions 2:3

The flag of the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the United States of America, consists of a red background, with a yellow Zia symbol just above the center of the flag, the word "Albuquerque" below the Zia symbol, in yellow, the word "1706" inside the circle of the Zia symbol, in yellow, and a yellow sylized thunderbird in the canton area, flying towards the center of the flag.


Red and yellow are the colors of New Mexico, and the Zia symbol is a symbol of New Mexico. The word "Albuquerque" can figure that out. The word "1706" represents the year 1706, the year that Albuquerque was founded as a city. The thunderbird is a symbol of Albuquerque.[citation needed]
