STATE FLAG The winning entry in a contest held in 1916 by the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Indiana flag was officially adopted in 1917. The centered gold torch on the blue field is said to represent liberty and enlightenment. The outer ring of stars (thirteen) symbolizes the original colonies. The lower five represent the next states to join the Union, and the largest star at the top is for Indiana, the 19th State.
STATE COLORS  
STATE SEAL Emblems and special days are established by law and made a part of the Indiana Code (IC).Versions of this pioneer scene have been used on Indiana seals since territorial days. They are found on official papers as early as 1801. A seal was provided for in both the 1816 and 1851 state constitutions. The 1963 General Assembly gave legal sanction to this design and provided an official description (IC 1-2-4). The elements are a woodsman, buffalo, sycamore trees, hills and a setting sun; leaves of the state tree are in the border design.
