Wichita’s official city flag was officially adopted in 1937. Designed by Wichita artist Cecil McAlister, it represents freedom, happiness, contentment and home.

The blue sun in the center represents happiness and contentment. The Native American symbol for ‘home’ is stitched on the blue sun. The three red and white rays that alternate from the off-center blue sun represent the path of freedom to come and go as one pleases.

Selected from more than 100 entries that were submitted for a city flag design contest, it was officially adopted on Flag Day, June 14, 1937, by Mayor T. Walker Weaver. The first Wichita flag was produced by local seamstress Mary J. Harper. It flew for the first time on July 23, 1937, over City Hall, which was then located at 204 S. Main.
