In 1916, the Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution commemorated our state’s centennial anniversary by sponsoring a competition for the design of a state “banner.”
The winning design, by Paul Hadley of Mooresville, was a blue field with yellow stars representing states, and a torch representing liberty and enlightenment. In 1917, the Indiana General Assembly adopted this banner (with only one change: the word "Indiana" over the torch), and in 1955, designated it as the official state flag, still known and loved today.**
Thus, Indiana Daughters wish to celebrate our bicentennial by initiating a competition to create a salute to this same flag!
This contest is open to all Indiana residents, and the winning submission will be brought before the Indiana General Assembly for approval.
