Designed by Roger E. Gohl

The flag of Indianapolis has a dark blue field with a white five-pointed star pointing upwards in the center. Around the star is a circular field in red. Surrounding the red field is a white ring, from which extend four white stripes from top to bottom and from hoist to fly, thus creating four equal quadrants in the field. The stripes are about one-seventh the width of the flag, with the white ring the same width as the stripes. The diameter of the red circle is about two-ninths the width of the flag.

The current flag design was adopted by the City of Indianapolis on May 20, 1963. The flag was first raised from the City–County Building on November 7, 1963. It was designed by John Herron Art Institute student Roger E. Gohl.
