Inscription
At centennial of statehood in 1916, Indiana lacked a unique state flag. The Indiana DAR spearheaded a movement to create a design by hosting a state flag competition. Mooresville watercolorist and John Herron Art Institute instructor Paul Hadley submitted the winning design.

The Indiana General Assembly adopted Hadley's design in 1917, but it was not widely recognized by the public. Soldiers serving in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam requested flags as a symbol of home. Celebration of Indiana's sesquicentennial in 1966 further established Hadley's design as the official state flag and successfully encouraged its wider use and recognition.
