Mooresville in Morgan County, Indiana — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Indiana State Flag
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.
