Description of the flag

Doņa Ana County's flag consists of the county logo/seal on a plain white background. George Gray of Las Cruces designed the Doņa Ana County seal in 1958. The county sponsored a contest for a design, and he entered his rendition hoping to win the grand prize of a $25 savings bond. An art teacher at Las Cruces High School at the time, Mr. Gray said he designed the seal with the zia symbol to represent the State of New Mexico, the conquistador to represent the county's history and our ties to Mexico and Spain, the Organ Mountains and Rio Grande to represent the county's two major geographical landmarks, the rocket to represent White Sands Missile Range, the lamp of learning to represent New Mexico State University, and the cotton boll and chile pod to represent the Mesilla Valley's agricultural heritage. The seal today remains exactly as he designed it in 1958. Mr. Gray is now retired, but he  still lives in Las Cruces.
