The Wichita City flag embraces the city's rich Native American heritage. The Wichita flag, designed by Cecil McAlister in 1937, symbolizes the Indian word “Wichita" which means scattered lodges. The flag features a white circle around a blue disc and three alternating rays of white and red. The white circle represents home, the blue sun signifies happiness and contentment, while red denotes honor and white, courage. The red and white rays symbolize the paths to freedom. Stitched on the blue sun is the Indian symbol Hogan or permanent home. United, the colors and symbols of the Wichita flag convey that the people of Wichita are free to come and go.
