    Indiana flag history
    The Indiana State Flag was designed by Paul Hadley of Mooresville, Indiana. In 1914, the Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution offered a prize of $100 to the person who could design a state banner. Paul Hadley's design was accepted and submitted to the General Assembly of 1917 for official adoption. The addition of the word INDIANA was the only change made by the General Assembly.The state banner (not state flag, as an act of the Indiana state legislature in 1901 made the national flag of the United States the state flag) was adopted by the 1917 Indiana General Assembly as part of the celebration of the state's 1916 centennial. In 1955, the General Assembly changed its classification from state banner to state flag
