The Denver flag is made up of 4 components: a red area, a white squiggly line, a blue area and a yellow circle.

The red area represents the red colored clay underneath the Denver area to which the word 'Colorado' refers. The white squiggly line is a display of the mountains which form the backdrop of the city and is also in reference to Colorado's Native American heritage. The blue area represents the bright blue skies over the city and the yellow circle represents both the sun as well as gold which was a driving force behind the city's early foundations. The central location of the circle suggests the city's central position within the state.
