We love everything about Chicago including the flag. The city’s flag was created in 1917 when Wallace Rice won a city council sponsored design competition. It initially started with two stars until 1933 when a third was added. In 1939 a fourth star was introduced to create the Chicago flag as we know it today.
The three sections of white and two stripes represent the geography of Chicago, the stars symbolize historical events including Fort Dearborn, the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, and the Century of Progress Exposition of 1933–34.
