State of Kansas Flag
State of Kansas Flag
- Year First Flown: 1927
- Designed By: John J. Ingalls (seal)
- Design: A blue flag with the Kansas state seal placed in the center. Under the seal is the text "Kansas", written in yellow. Above the seal is a sunflower, and beneath the sunflower is a gold and blue stripe.
- Meaning: The seal contains 34 stars, which represent the fact that Kansas was the 34th state to be admitted to the Union. Placed above stars is the Kansas state motto "Ad Astra Per Aspera" which means "To the Stars With Difficulty". The man using the plough is a sign of the importance of agriculture to Kansas, and the steamship and river represent commerce for the state. The sunflower is placed on the flag because it is the state flower and nickname, and the gold and blue stripe below the sunflower represents the Louisiana Purchase.
History of the Flag
Original Kansas State Banner (1925-1927)
Between the years of 1925 and 1927, the state of Kansas flew a state banner instead of a state flag. The banner was made up of a large sunflower with the seal in the center of the flower, and the text "KANSAS" placed at the top of the banner in bright gold lettering. The state of Kansas supposedly chose this unique design to represent their statehood in order to avoid any sort of competition with the United States flag. Even though the banner was beautiful, it was rejected for display in Washington D.C. because it hung from a horizontal bar and was considered awkward to hang among other flags that used a vertical pole. And so, in 1927 Kansas legislature instead adopted a traditional horizontal state flag. The flag has a simple design of a blue field and the Kansas state seal in the center, and remained unchanged until 1961 when the word "Kansas" was added to the bottom of the flag.
The Great Seal of Kansas
The Great Seal of Kansas was designed by John J. Ingalls, a state senator from Atchison, Kansas. The seal was officially established in a joint resolution by the Kansas Legislature on May 25th, 1861. The resolution stated: "The east is represented by a rising sun, in the right-hand corner of the seal; to the left of it, commerce is represented by a river and a steamboat; in the foreground, agriculture is represented as the basis of the future prosperity of the state, by a settler's cabin and a man plowing with a pair of horses; beyond this is a train of ox-wagons, going west; in the background is seen a herd of buffalo, retreating, pursued by two Indians, on horseback; around the top is the motto, 'Ad astra per aspera,' and beneath a cluster of thirty-four stars. The circle is surrounded by the words, Great seal of the state of Kansas. January 29, 1861."
