The State Flag of Kansas was designed in 1925 and officially adopted in 1927. It was flown for the first time over Fort Riley by Governor Ben Paulin for the troops stationed there, as well as for the National Guard. At the center of the flag is the Great Seal of the State of Kansas, which pictures a landscape before the rising sun, a river and steamboat (signifying commerce), a cabin with a man plowing a field (representing agriculture), and a wagon train heading west (depicting American expansion). Also pictured is a group of Indians hunting buffalo. The cluster of 34 stars symbolizes Kansas’ role as the 34th state of the American Union. 
 
The state capitol building of Kansas is located in Topeka. Built in stages, work on the building began in 1866, with the east wing being completed in 1873. The west wing was built between 1879 and 1881, and the center of the building was constructed from 1884 to 1906. 
 
The Kansas state motto was first used by John James Ingalls as part of his design for the state flag. Although his flag design was not chosen, his motto was used on the state seal and flag, and was adopted as the state motto. 
 
The Kansas State Flag stamp is part of the 2008 Flags of Our Nation Series.
