Wichita’s official flag was accepted by proclamation on June 14, 1937, Flag Day. Three red and three white rays alternate from an off-centre blue sun. In the centre of the blue sun is a white circle with four sets of three parallel rays emanating from the circle's principal axis.

    Excellent tips and photos of Wichita. Don't know if I'll ever visit -- but it was an interesting virtual tour. Also, glad to see that you made a trip to Denny's -- one of America's top choices for a good, cheap meal -- especially when you are on the road.
