Illinois State Flags
The Illinois State flag respectfully advocates the state’s commitment to the Union while it also expresses the sovereignty of the “Land of Lincoln”. The Illinois flag depicts the Illinois State Seal set in a field of white. Symbols on the shield mirror the Great Seal of the United States and note the dates of statehood, 1818, and the year the Seal was redesigned, 1868. An eagle clutches the words of the Illinois state motto: “State Sovereignty, National Union”. Illinois supported of the Union during the Civil War yet continued to assert the state’s own authority. Thus the word “sovereign” is flipped over. Illinois is often thought of as a mini America as it contains a metropolitan area, small industrial cities, vast agricultural lands and regions of abundant natural resources.
