The great state of Kansas became the 34th state of the
Union on January 29, 1861. The history of the state is written in
its flag. Thirty-four stars in the constellation on the state seal
indicate Kansas as the 34th state admitted to the Union. Rolling hills
identify the terrain in Kansas and a steamboat represents navigation
on the Kansas River. Indians hunting bison, teams of oxen and a pair
of prairie schooners suggest the advance of the frontier, while plowed
fields before a log cabin represent agriculture.
