别名「向日葵之州」(Sunflower State)的堪萨斯在1861年添加联邦,成为美国第34州。堪萨斯一字源自于坎萨族或考族印地安人,它是一个苏族印地安名词,意即「南风区域内的人(south wind people)。堪萨斯的边界是北美洲的磁性中心点。美国、加拿大及墨西哥在进行土地测量时,都会以此点为参考点。 美国境内,48个相连州的地理中心位于堪萨斯平原上。长于这片土地上的向日葵是堪萨斯州的州花,而它的首府是托皮卡(Topeka)


Known as the "Sunflower State," Kansas became the 34th state in 1861. The state's name comes from the Kansa or Kaw Indians and is a Sioux Indian term meaning "south wind people." Within Kansas's borders is the magnetic center mark for all of North America. All land surveys in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico use this as a reference point. The geographic center of the 48 contiguous (connected) states is located in a Kansas pasture. The native sunflower is the state flower and the capital is Topeka.
