It won't be long before Kansas drivers can sport a Wichita flag license plate on their cars.
On Saturday, Gov. Jeff Colyer signed the bill that will bring the license plate featuring the beloved red-white-and-blue Wichita flag to Kansas county tag offices. That bill was passed by both the House and Senate earlier this year.

The bill will become law in July 2018. Based on that schedule, Wichita flag license plates will be available at county tag offices starting Jan. 1, 2019, according to the Wichita Parks Foundation.
The license plate is the beginning of the foundation's “Plates for Parks” campaign, and the $50 annual royalty fee will go toward supporting city park improvements and programs.
"Things are happening in Wichita and I think that's emblematic of what is happening in the state of Kansas," Colyer tweeted after signing the bill. "I'm very happy to sign the bill authorizing the new @WichitaFlag license plate!"
