    Designed by local artist Cecil McAlister in a 1937 city flag design contest, Wichita's official city flag was adopted on Flag Day (June 14) that same year. Red and white rays symbolize the path of freedom to come and go as one pleases. The blue disc represents happiness and contentment. The white symbol in the disc signifies 'permanent home.'

    The flag's resurgence as a symbol of local civic pride started around 2015. Since then numerous murals painted by local artists have incorporated the flag or its elements. This is a tour of the flag-related outdoor murals that you'll find when biking or walking around Douglas Avenue, an east-west  Wichita thoroughfare.

Look for more information on ilovewichita.org about flag-related murals throughout the rest of the community, flag history, downloadable coloring sheets, places to purchase flag swag and copyright information.

    You are correct "Traveler." Chamber staff volunteered their time on weekends and after work hours to take the photos and collect the basic information. The translations were made possible by another group of dedicated volunteer students and instructors from Friends University and a Wichita State student. Now that we have the basics in place we hope to find volunteers to collect the business owner and artist stories behind the murals.

    It is a shame no stories have been put behind these murals. Only facts who and when put them, which is the least interesting information.
