History of the Flag
Paul Hadley looks on as his design becomes a physical flag
Indiana joined the United States Union as the 19th state on December 11th, 1816. 100 years later, in 1916, it was decided that an official state flag would be designed to celebrate the state's Centennial. The Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution sponsored the competition at the behest of the Indiana General Assembly. Over two hundred designs were submitted to the contest, but it was Paul Hadley's design that won the competition. The flag was officially adopted by the Indiana General Assembly on May 31st, 1917.
Symbolism of the Flag
Indiana Flag Illustration
The flaming torch of the Indiana state flag is meant to represent "liberty and enlightenment", similar to the torch that Lady Liberty (The Statue of Liberty) holds. The six rays that burst out from the flame are supposed to symbolize the way that the ideas of liberty and enlightenment can grow, move, and expand. The outer circle containing 13 stars stands for the original 13 U.S. colonies, while the inner circle of five stars represents the 14th-18th U.S. states. And finally, the flag's largest star that is positioned directly above the torch's flame symbolizes Indiana, the 19th state to join the Union.
