Kansas State Flag

Description

The Kansas state flag consists of a blue background containing the state’s seal. Just above the seal is a sunflower on a gold and blue bar. The state’s name; “Kansas” appears in bold letters beneath the seal. Inside the seal shows a landscape that depicts a flowing river, steamboat, plowman, cabin, bison, American Indians, and wagons with mountains in the horizon. Above the landscape image within the seal, shows thirty-four stars arched beneath the words, “Ad Astra per aspera.”

Meaning

The state crest which includes the blue and gold bar represents the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 – when the United States obtained Kansas, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana from the French. The sunflower sitting on top of the bar is shown without its stem possibly represent fearlessness and open frankness.

The state seal which includes a very detailed landscape; exemplifies the historical story of Kansas itself. The thirty-four stars represent Kansas as the 34th state. Above the stars is the motto ‘Ad Astra per aspera’ which is Latin for ‘to the stars through difficulties’.

History

Adopted on May 21, 1927 the Kansas state flag was brought in to replace the banner that had been used between 1925 and 1927 that consisted of a large sunflower and the word Kansas on a blue field. The change was made due to the banner being rejected as a state symbol that could be hung in Washington DC. The adopted flag itself was modified in 1961 to add the state name in gold capitals giving us the Kansas state flag of the present day.
