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.
