The Arizona Centennial Commission, the organization planning Arizona's year-long statewide Centennial celebration in 2012, indicated that Pendleton Woolen Mills was selected to design, weave and market the official Arizona Centennial commemorative blanket.
The Centennial blanket was originally available in an open edition (not signed by the Governor or numbered) and a custom edition of 150 blanket which include a leather patch identifying their number and also containing the signature of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. The blankets we have are all part of the custom edition.
Inspired by the Arizona flag, this custom blanket features a central copper star on a deep blue background. The five points of the star recall the five "C's" of Arizona's economy: copper, cotton, cattle, citrus and climate. The borders of the blanket are inspired by designs from Arizona's rich and diverse Native American and Hispanic cultures and incorporate fifteen diamond shaped elements which symbolize the state's fifteen counties: Apache, Cochise, Coconino, Gila, Graham, Greenlee, La Paz, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo, Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz, Yavapai and Yuma. The red and yellow pointed elements of the borders evoke the rays of the setting sun on the Arizona state flag. /p>
