Long Description:
Route 66 Motel & Restaurant - Not much history can be found on the Web, about the Motel & Restaurant, but lots of info on the Zia Zia Sign.

That logo looks familiar. Where's it from?
"The Zia logo is used by the state of New Mexico on both the flag and license plates.
The symbol originated with the Indians of Zia Pueblo in ancient times. It's design reflects their tribal philosophy, with its wealth of pantheistic spiritualism teaching the basic harmony of all things in the universe.
The flag of New Mexico was designed with their historical background in mind. It shows the ancient Zia Sun Symbol in red on a field of Spanish yellow. The symbol's proportions are fixed by legislative act." Text Source: (visit link)
