Radisson Hotel City Centre, Indianapolis, Indiana
October 8–10, 2004

Meeting flag description: Based on the black-and-white checkered racing flag made famous by the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, this flag is frequently associated with that city. Superimposed over the checkered-flag design, also in black and white, is the basic Indianapolis city flag design fit into an inverted triangle. That, in turn, is outlined at the bottom by a black-on-white “V” for vexillology.
