Colorado State Symbols, presented a fun-filled and informative glance at the state’s official state symbols that best characterized the cultural heritage and natural treasures of Colorado.

Recognizable icons and emblems such as the flag, bird, and tree were just a few of the 20 official state symbols presented in the exhibit. The DEN Arts Program partnered with several organizations and individuals to represent each symbol that ultimately served as Colorado’s ambassadors to the world. A trip through Colorado State Symbols took DEN travelers on a historical and modern journey through the Centennial State!
