*For the third year, the IUPUI Flag Collection is on display in the Campus Center. The collection, which is curated by the International Center, includes flags of all UN-recognized member states. As a result, it does not include all states represented by students at IUPUI, so we welcome the formal addition of flags that are not represented. During key times at the International Festival — 11:15, 11:45, and 1:00 — students are invited to formally add flags to the display and will have 2-3 minutes to explain why the non-UN member flag should be included. Presentations should be professional and focus on the merit of the cause rather than attacking an existing UN member state.
