Spanish Colorado Central Heart Heritage Flag

This flag represents that central left over portion of Colorado that Spain forgot about.  This part of Colorado was once thought to be a part of the Louisiana Purchase, but was in fact, legally speaking, a part of the 1819 Spanish Cessation that also included the western part of Louisiana.

The colours red and yellow are based upon the Spanish Flag while the blue C represents Colorado and the white disc is a snowball.

Legally speaking Colorado was made up of four different parts - the Louisiana Purchase,Texas, Mexico and Spanish Leftovers from 1819. 

In 1819 Spain gave up all it US continental land claims on Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Colorado.
