"Illinois State Flag" Illinois Favorite Tip by Astrobuck

Illinois General: 52 reviews and 39 photos


Fondest memory: The Illinois flag is a simple representation of the Great Seal of Illinois against a white background.

This is the wierd part (to me anyway): The State's name was added to the flag in 1969 to ensure that people not familiar with the Great Seal of Illinois would still recognize the banner.
