Logo
At first glance, many people mistakenly assume that our logo is simply the state flag of Indiana. True rocketeers who look a little closer will quickly recognize that the torch in the center has been replaced by a rocket. The blue background represents the blue sky we launch our rockets into and the stars we aspire to reach. We were first officially named Tripoli Indiana as a prefecture of the Tripoli Rocketry Association. This logo was created by David Reese and officially adopted in 2011.
