Navajo Nation Souvenir Flag
The flag of the Navajo Nation is the official flag of the Navajo Nation, a Native American governed, sovereign nation in the Four Corners states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. On May 21, 1968, the flag, designed by Jay R. Degroat, a student from Mariano Lake, New Mexico was selected from 140 entries for the Navajo Flag Competition to become the nation's official flag. It incorporates elements of the tribal seal designed by John Claw, Jr. adopted earlier, on 18 January 1952.
On a pale buff field four sacred mountains of four different colors (black, white, turquoise, and yellow from the Navajo creation myth) surround the center element of the flag, a map of the Navajo Nation with a white disk in the center. A rainbow symbolizing Navajo sovereignty appears over the seal. In 1995 the Navajo flag became the first Native American tribal flag in space when Bernard Harris carried it aboard the space shuttle Discovery.
