City of Carmel, Hamilton County, Indiana. Established in 1837 as a town of Bethlehem. The area was previously a domain of Delaware (Miami) Indians. Became a home of the Quaker settlers. Incorporated in 1874 as a town of Carmel (name
changed because there already was a Bethlehem, Indiana). In November of 1974, a referendum took place as to whether Carmel should become a Fourth Class City. The residents voted in the affirmative. Population: about 26,000

The flag is blue with a white rising diagonal bearing the name CARMEL. In the upper hoist is a large yellow star above the date 1837. In the lower fly is the city seal(?) with the date 1976 above it.
