Grand Boulevard of the Americas

Grand Boulevard, one of Kansas City, Missouri’s major boulevards and its main ceremonial roadway, was named the honorary Grand Boulevard of the Americas in April of 2008.

The flags of the 35 member countries of the Organization of American States (OAS) are displayed, multiple times, along the length of Boulevard. Voting member countries were selected because they subscribe to the OAS Charter and the principles for which it stands. The Grand Boulevard of the Americas demonstrates Kansas City’s evolution as a global city and the importance it places on the countries of the Americas.

“I visited Kansas City as part of a U. S. State Department program. When I saw the Grand Boulevard of the Americas I was very surprised about that initiative. Then when I saw the flag of Costa Rica, I felt very nice to be taken into account. I felt like my country is important to the U.S. and to Kansas City and we are not so apart. The initiative also gives life to the boulevard. It was really nice, a special feeling. It is a very good and very simple initiative to make the visitors from little countries, like me, feel closer to the people from Kansas City.”
