Flag of Illinois (GIF)



Illinois is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. Its capital is Springfield, and its largest city is Chicago; its population is about 12,802,000, and its area is 57,914 mi². The Illinois flag consists of the Illinois seal on a white background with the word "Illinois" at the bottom of the seal. The eagle has a ribbon in its beak that shows the state's slogan. The dates on the seal represent the years when Illinois became a state (1818) and the Great Seal was redesigned (1868). Thirteen stars and lines on the shield symbolize the original thirteen states of the Union. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 3:5, and the flag was adopted on June 27, 1969.
