An illustration of a pennant-shaped flag, the top half is purple, and the bottom half is gold. A medallion in the center of the flag reads: The ballot is denied to women; the blot on the escutcheon.

Yellow, purple, and white were the colors of suffrage. Yellow represented the sunflower (the state flower of Kansas, the site of some of the earliest suffrage campaigns), purple represented loyalty, and white represented purity.
