1916
Title:
Indiana Centennial Fort Wayne Flag
Description:
As Fort Wayne celebrated the state centennial in 1916, the Fort Wayne Centennial Association planned an exposition celebrating the city's industry, featuring displays by two hundred local businesses. Originally scheduled for June 5—10, Centennial Week festivities were extended through June 17 due to rain.

In early 1916 Guy Drewett won a contest sponsored by the Journal Gazette for the design of the Fort Wayne flag. During the centennial celebration, Drewett went door—to—door selling the flag in a successful distribution campaign.
