Kansas State Flag

A flag is often an amalgam of anecdotes that tell the history of a state.

You will find below the description and explanation for the symbols of the flag of Kansas.

The flag of Kansas was adopted on 22 September 1961. It consists of a blue background on which is printed the seal of the state. This is topped with a sunflower. The name of the state is listed below. The seal represents different symbols dear to Kansas. First of all, there are the main activities at its creation: the boat for trade, the farmer for agriculture. We also see Indians hunting buffalo to remind Kansas’ roots. Finally, 34 stars are drawn, because Kansas is the 34th state to have joined the United States. Over stars, the motto of Kansas is written: "Ad astra per aspera" which means "To the stars and despite difficulties". Kansas has joined the United States on 4 July 1861. Kansas is known as the "Sunflower State", and its capital is Topeka.
