Chicago’s flag just celebrated a milestone birthday!
The flag’s design turns 100 in just a couple of weeks as the City Council originally OK’ed it’s design in April of 1917.
After doing a little research, I found out that the flag representing our city has changed a little bit over the years!
Sure, it’s always had the blue and white stripes and red stars, but the number of stars have changed over the years!
A third star was added in 1933 and another star just six years later.
It hasn’t changed much since then though!
The Chicago History Museum is holding a free celebration for the flag on April 4th.
It’s free for people who live in Illinois, so I might just have to check it out.
Well, if it’s free and there’s birthday cake….you know…to celebrate the flag’s birthday, then I’ll definitely check it out!
