Topeka was nicknamed the Golden City by early settlers to the area, taken by the beauty of the sunlit rolling hills and autumn elms. The city crest was designed in the 1960’s by city-county planning department artist, Ed Bruske, at the request of Commander L.R. Olsen, for his USS Topeka guided missile cruiser. This ship was the second of three USS Topeka’s named for our city. The third USS Topeka was commissioned in 1989 as a nuclear attack submarine, and is still on active service. The Topeka flag was adopted in 1977; it was a United States bicentennial project of Boy Scout Troop 43 and designed by Dana Villeme, a 13-year old Eagle Scout, with the advice of some local architects.
