Sunflower Gold

In 1867, the women's suffrage movement targeted the progressive(!) state of Kansas for an amendment for women's suffrage in that state.  To that end, the suffragists adopted the state flower - the sunflower - as a symbol of the movement.  The effort was not successful, but from that time forward, sunflower gold was one of the colors associated with women's suffrage.
