IHB > Bicentennial Signs Bicentennial Sign Initiative

IHB's Bicentennial Signage program has been endorsed by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.  Working with the Commission and its Endorsements Committee, IHB aims to help communities and organizations mark their Bicentennial activity in a lasting way.

If you do not have an endorsed project yet, apply for endorsement following the Indiana Bicentennial Commissions instructions.


Communities and organizations participating in the Bicentennial celebration are eligible for signage.  This includes:

  • Indiana localities and organizations with festivals or other activities endorsed by the Bicentennial Commission,
  • Endorsed projects that are destinations (parks, preserves, monuments, and other structures)
  • and, other projects deemed eligible for signage by the Bicentennial Commission in the future.  We will update this page as new initiatives are identified.


$8 from the sale of each sign supports the Bicentennial Commission's efforts.

Bicentennial signage is affordable and available in two sizes.  

18"x18" Full Color Signs are $175+ $12 shipping and handling

24"x24" Full Color Signs are $205+ $12 shipping and handling
