Indiana Flag
State Flag of Indiana
Like several other states, the design for the Indiana State flag was the result of a contest sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution. Held in conjunction with the Indiana Centennial in 1916, approximately 200 entries were submitted and the design by local artist Paul Hadley was chosen.

The design consists of a yellow torch, signifying "Liberty and Enlightenment," on a blue background. The torch is surrounded by an outer ring of thirteen stars representing the original thirteen colonies along with an inner arrangement of six stars representing the next six states admitted to the Union. Being the nineteenth state, Indiana's star appears as the largest, centered above the torch with the name of the State in a partial circular pattern above the star.
