Indiana State Flag

Flag Facts:

This flag was adopted in 1917 by the Indiana General Assembly
Designed by Paul Hadley of Mooresville

The state flag should be three feet fly by two feet hoist or five feet fly by three feet hoist or any other size proportionate to these dimensions.

The field shall be blue with nineteen stars and a flaming torch in gold or buff. Thriteen stars shall be arranged in an outer circle, representing the original thirteen states; five stars shall be arranged in a half circle below the torch and inside the outer circle of stars, representing the states admitted prior to Indiana; and the nineteenth star, appreciably larger than the others and representing Indiana shall be placed above the flame of the torch. The outer circle of stars shall be so arranged that one star shall appear directly in the middle at the top of the circle, and the word, "Indiana," shall be placed in a half circle over and above the star representing Indiana and midway between it and the star in the center above it. Rays shall be shown radiating from the torch to the three stars on each side of the star in the upper center of the circle
