The state of New Mexico Flag is digitally printed on 200 denier SolarMax® nylon. The fabric is made for outdoor use with four rows of stitching on the fly end. The material of the flag starts as white, the yellow background and red sun symbol are printed using DuPont ink. The flag is treated to resist sun and chemical deterioration. The state of New Mexico flag is printed single side reverse, which means it reads correctly on the front and reads in reverse on the back. However, the New Mexico flag is the same in the front as it is in the back, so you would never notice.
