National Arizona Day: Why We Love Arizona

National Arizona Day: Why We Love Arizona

National Arizona Day

On June 21st, on National Arizona Day, Copperstate Moving would like to celebrate the state that we call home. National Arizona Day is when our state was recognized as the 48th state. With its rich history, the Grand Canyon State is one of the youngest states in the U.S.A., after officially becoming a state in February of 1912. 

What most people don’t know about Arizona statehood is that the government initially wanted to bring in Arizona and New Mexico as one state. This, however, was voted against by the people in the territories. At that time, the population of the territory of Arizona was only 200,000 residents. 

Grand Canyon State

With our Arizona moving company having a broad reach around the state, we find ourselves more than qualified to fill you in about the day we get to celebrate National Arizona Day and its history. Arizona is filled with so many beautiful sights, creatures, and experiences. Often we are called the Grand Canyon State because we are known for, well, the Grand Canyon. We also have an Arizona state bird and an Arizona state gem. The state bird is the Cactus Wren, the largest wren in the species, and is common to the deserts in the southwest part of the country. The Arizona state gem is the Turquoise gem, a blue-green mineral representing wisdom, tranquility, good fortune, and hope. Our Surprise movers, Peoria movers, Goodyear movers, and Litchfield park movers hope you will find all of this in our great state.
