Broadcasting Love from the Land of Enchantment
The ZIA Sun Symbol:
New Mexico’s distinctive insignia is the Zia Sun Symbol, which originated with the Native people of Zia Pueblo in ancient times.
Four is the sacred number of Zia, and the figure is composed of a circle from which four points radiate.
To the Zia , the sacred number is embodied in the earth,
with its four seasons;
in the day, with sunrise, noon, evening and night;
in life, with its four divisions—childhood, youth, manhood and old age;
the four points on the compass- North, South, East, West
Everything is bound together in a circle of life and love without beginning, without end.
