According to the release, the Indiana state flag will also be honored throughout the uniform. From to the release:
The historic inspiration continues with white classic tackle twill numbers, highlighted with hints of the Indiana state flag. Each number has its own unique piece of the flag, depicting different angles of the 19 stars and torch that represent liberty and enlightenment of the 19th state to join the United States. Additionally, six stars releasing rays of light that embody the state’s far-reaching influence are depicted within the design. Topping off the theme on the jersey, the interlocking IU emblem sits directly above the chest plate to amplify Hoosier pride.
