✍️ The Design: Adopted in 1997, the Roswell, New Mexico flag has all of the allure of the Land of Enchantment. The designer, Stephen Flemming, has this to say about it's design:
x"The design of the flag for the City of Roswell is inspired by the land, water and sky that surround us here in southeastern New Mexico. The blue field of the flag is representative of the vast sky above us and this same blue forms the mountain of Capitan, our ever-present companion in the west. The sun is represented by the Zia symbol of the New Mexico state flag reminding us that we are all part of the "Land of Enchantment". The stripes in the lower portion of the City of Roswell Flag are yellow for the plains of the Pecos Valley; green for the agriculture of our region; blue for the Pecos River; red for earth beneath our feet. This pattern of stripes also symbolizes the various strata of our subsurface geology and the precious resources, including water, which are so vital to life here. The green and red stripes also acknowledge our historical and cultural ties with Mexico and our vibrant Hispanic heritage. The small white circle in the upper left, positioned along with the stripes at the bottom are reminiscent of the Stars and Stripes of Old Glory, but also symbolizes the enigmas of the heavens above us, the challenges of the future and the wonder we all experience when we contemplate the mysteries of the universe."
Our flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D). In our testing, we selected 200D as the perfect flag material; anything heavier doesn't fly well and the "back" doesn't get enough ink, anything lighter feels cheap and wont last very long.
