Anthony Wayne Treaty Flag

[Anthony Wayne Treaty Flag]

This flag was presented to the Miami chief She-Moc-E-Nish by General Anthony Wayne at the Treaty of Greenville in Ohio in 1795. The flag was handed down through two granddaughters of the chief. It is composed of fifteen stripes, red, white, and blue, made of domestic bunting, probably originally 3 feet 6 inches by 6 feet. The white linen field contains, in place of stars, the inscription, "A. Wayne, Commander in Chief."

The following primary source documents are the basis of what the Indiana Historical Bureau has learned about the flag. They consist of:
Affidavit, Dr. Perry G. Moore, August 30, 1923
Greenville Treaty Flag Article, January 1937
Greenville Treaty Flag Article, July 1937
