WASHINGTON, D.C. – In honor of Indiana’s 199th birthday, today Representative Jackie Walorski (IN-02) joined the Indiana Congressional delegation to celebrate Indiana Statehood Day and the beginning of a yearlong countdown to its bicentennial in 2016 with the official Indiana Bicentennial Flag.
“As we honor our state today, it’s important for Hoosiers across Indiana to remember our history and reflect on how great our state truly is,” Walorski said. “I want to thank the Indiana Bicentennial Commission for providing the commemorative flag and I look forward to celebrating our state’s history not just today, but every day.”
The Bicentennial Flag is being flown throughout communities across the state through a sponsorship from Bicentennial Commission member and philanthropist P.E. MacAllister, MacAllister Machinery and the Association of Indiana Counties. The white flag boasts the Indiana Bicentennial logo in the blue and yellow of the Indiana state flag.
