IU makes its mark across the globe with #RaiseTheFlag campaign

Mar 22, 2017

Members of the IU family are encouraged to raise the flag and show that Hoosiers are everywhere, from Indiana to Istanbul.

It’s easy to participate: If you have an IU flag, take a photo of yourself with it wherever you might be between now and late August, and post it to social media with the hashtag #RaiseTheFlag.

The goal is for images of people from every IU campus to be displayed on the official #RaiseTheFlag website – which works best with Twitter and Instagram posts. The photos showing off the most creative ideas or unique locations might even have a chance to win prizes or wind up on official IU social media channels!

If you don’t have flags and are interested in buying some affordable ones for your unit or office, contact IU director of social media strategy Kristofer Karol at
