Kansas State Flag
We carry authentic Kansas State Flags in both indoor and outdoor varieties. Our flags are proudly made in the United States from durable nylon and are printed with vibrant long-lasting inks. The Kansas state flag is often displayed at schools, government organizations, banks, and other institutions in the state, as well as at the homes of people who take great pride in their Kansas heritage.
Our indoor flags are finished with a pole hem and your choice of with or without golden fringe. Gold Fringe is the traditional way to display an indoor flag, however, some people choose without fringe for a simple and clean look that is also less expensive. If you are looking for a complete indoor presentation set, our Build Your Own Indoor State Flag Set program allows you to select a durable nylon indoor Kansas Flag and choose between premium quality poles, bases, and ornaments, and tassel. For indoor applications, most buyers choose a 3ft. x 5ft. flag with an 8ft. pole, however, if you have a low ceiling, you may opt for a 7ft. pole, which is designed to work with drop ceilings. If you are looking for a very substantial state flag display, our 4ft. x 6ft. indoor flags can be paired with a 9ft. pole for our largest indoor display option.
Our outdoor state flags are finished with a canvas header and brass grommets and are offered in five sizes: 2ft. x 3ft., 3ft. x 5ft., 4ft. x 6ft., 5ft. x 8ft., and 6ft. x 10ft., to fit any sized flagpole. Typically, outdoor flags are flown outside of government organizations and institutions on in-ground and wall-mount flagpoles, however, some people also buy these flags to display their state pride at home. If you are looking for a wall-mount Kansas flag set to display outside of your home, our Build Your Own Outdoor State Flag Set program will allow you to choose between premium quality 6ft. poles and brackets to display the Kansas Flag on your front porch.
Regardless of your application, we are looking forward to working with you to provide the required flags, flagpoles, and hardware for your application. If you need assistance, please reach out to us by phone, email, or chat, and we will be happy to help.
History of the Kansas Flag
The Kansas State Flag features a dark blue background, with the seal of Kansas emblazoned upon the center. Above the seal is a sunflower on a twisted blue and gold bar and below the seal is the word, "KANSAS" in bold yellow text.
The seal features a landscape comprised of a rising sun, river and steamboat, settler's cabin, a man with horses plowing a field, a wagon train, and Native American's hunting an American bison. Above the scene, in the sky are an arched formation of 34 white five-point stars with an orange arched banner above them containing the state motto, "Ad Astra Per Aspera," which is Latin for, "To the Stars Through Difficulties." This scene was designed to illustrate the history of Kansas.
The rising sun on the seal represents the East, while the river and steamboat represent early commerce along the Kansas River. The cabin, settler, and plow horses represent the states rich history of agriculture. The wagon train heading West signifies the American expansion, while the Native American's hunting the Bison pays homage to the earliest residents of Kansas.
The state motto represents the high aspirations and perseverance of the residents of Kansas, while the 34 stars signify that Kansas was the 34th state to join the United States of America. The sunflower is Kansas's state flower, and the twisted blue and gold bar below the sunflower signifies the Louisiana purchase. The Kansas State Flag was designed by Hazel Avery while she was the first lady of Kansas and was adopted on September 24th, 1961.
Kansas is located in the Midwestern region of the United States of America. It shares borders with Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Colorado. The name Kansas is derived from the Kansa American Tribe which translates to, "People of the south wind" and is divided in 105 counties with 628 cities.
The capital city of Kansas is Topeka and the largest city is Wichita. Kansas is also referred to as, "The Sunflower State," as sunflowers grow in abundance here. The Sunflower is also the state flower and also represented on the flag. Kansas has acquired many nicknames throughout its history including, "The Wheat State," "The Breadbasket of the world," and "The Jayhawk State."
Kansas was originally inhabited by Native American Tribes. The first European to arrive in the area was Spanish Conqueror, Francisco Vazquez de Coronado in 1541. In 1803, the majority of Kansas was controlled by the United States of America following the Louisiana Purchase except for Southwest Kansas which still belonged to Spain, Mexico, and the Republic of Texas until 1848, when control of the lands was relinquished to the United States of America. Kansas became the official 34th state of the United States of America on January 29th, 1861.
