Happy Statehood Day, Arizona!

Desert sceneA little over a century ago in 1912, the beautiful state we call home became the state of Arizona. So forget that it’s Valentine’s Day and go celebrate Arizona’s statehood!

Check out these 10 facts about Arizona so you can impress your friends on Arizona’s birthday:

1. Arizona will turn 104 this year.
2. Arizona became the 48th state in 1912. Prior to it becoming a state, it was known as a territory of New Mexico, but often referred to as Arizona.
3. The state flower is a saguaro cactus blossom. It was adopted in 1901 as the territorial flower and in 1930 became the official state flower.
4. The bola tie is the official state neckwear.
5. Arizona has several nicknames including the “Grand Canyon State”, the “Copper State” and the “Valentine’s Day State”.
6. Arizona leads the nation in copper production, accounting for 68% of the United States’ copper. The Capitol building in Phoenix contains enough copper to make 4,800,000 pennies.
7. Arizona does not observe daylight-saving time.
8. Arizona is the 6th-largest state at around 114,000 square miles.
