"The Crossroads of America"
Adopted in 1937.
Indiana is located in the midwestern part of the United States and ranks among the top ten states in both agricultural and industrial output. Because Indiana's railways, waterways and ports provide access to the world, "The Crossroads of America" was adopted by the Indiana General Assembly in 1937. When this motto was chosen, the theoretical center of the United States was in Indiana; furthermore, a number of north-south and east-west routes intersect in Indiana. Some of these routes have been of national importance since pioneer days.
There are four states with mottos that focus on geography:
- Alaska: "North to the Future"
- Minnesota: "L'Etoile du Nord" (Star of the North),
- Indiana: "The Crossroads of America"
- Michigan: "Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice" (If You Seek a Pleasant Peninsula, Look About You)
