It’s free machine embroidery design Monday, but being that I am out of town today (and did not travel with my embroidery machine) it is difficult for me to digitize something new and stitch it out. Instead I’ve rustled through the archive of designs I created in the past and found something to offer up to my blog followers this week: the New Mexico state symbol that you see on the state flag.
Have you ever wondered what the symbol on the New Mexico state flag means? It’s actually a Zia sun symbol that was discovered at the Zia Pueblo in northern New Mexico. The symbol and it’s four lines have meaning to the Zia culture: four seasons, four directions, etc… The symbol was appropriated by archaeologist, Dr. Harry Mera, who won a contest in designing the state flag in 1925.
So why offer the New Mexico state flag embroidery symbol this week? I don’t have a good one for you there – but I am hoping that it proves to be useful to you all.
