The core of the design remains the the font introduced for the logo of the 103rd running of the Memorial Day Weekend classic. The aim is to present a consistent brand appearance while also including unique elements each year, such as the Pagoda in this year’s logo.

The original winner’s wreath presented to the late Jim Rathmann featured dark yellow and brown flowers and was created by Indianapolis-based florist Bill Cronin, who was a consultant for the Rose Bowl parade and 500 Festival parade.

In 1989, the current wreath design was created by adding 33 ivory-colored cymbidium orchids with burgundy tips to represent each of car starting the race, along with a red, white and blue ribbon, checkered flags and a base of cedar blocks inscribed with “BorgWarner.”

Julie Harman Vance, the owner of the Buck Creek In Bloom flower shop in Yorktown, IN, has made the wreath every year since 1992.
