16 Indiana District Banner The Indiana District Banner incorporates the state colors of blue and gold with the LWML Peoria logo of Living on the Edge. It features a dark silhouette of a woman to represent the membership of Indianas LWML, standing on the edge of an abyss. The dark color reminds us that we are sinners standing on lifes precarious edge. However, looking toward the heavens is the cross of gold, radiating its rays of light, hope, and salvation. Because of His cross, we who live in Indiana, are able to stand with confidence at the crossroads of the Midwest and life knowing that Jesus will sustain us in everything.
