Indiana State Motto:

Indiana quarter - click to see all state quarters
Indiana became the 19th state in 1816 (see statehood order). Indiana's commemorative quarter features the state motto: "Crossroads of America," IndyCar, Indiana state outline, and nineteen stars (public domain image on Wikipedia). See All 50 state quarters - All State Mottos - National Motto.

"The Crossroads of America"

The Crossroads of America is the official motto of Indiana. The nickname began as the nickname for the city of Indianapolis, which is the hub for several major Interstate highways that criss-cross the state, connecting Hoosiers to the rest of the United States.
