Kingman KS started its official flag contest in August 2019 and announced a
winner on January 23, 2020. The style guide is available on this page:
"The elements of the flag represent both the city and county of Kingman, Kansas. The gold chevron represents the Golden Valley of the Ninnescah. The white sun represents the prosperity and forward- thinking of the residents in each community in the Golden Valley, as well as the Sun Dance of the Kiowa tribe that historically inhabited the area. Red and black are the colors that are identified with the Unified Kiowa tribe, as well as being the colors of the county’s two school districts.
The color red symbolizes the boldness and courage of Kingman residents. The black color symbolizes strength and authority. The gold color represents the rich resources and agricultural heritage of the county. The white color symbolizes hope and aspirations for the future."
