Chicago has a deep appreciation for its history, which is represented in our flag. The four stars represent four distinct events in Chicago's history: Fort Dearborn, The Great Chicago Fire, The World's Columbian Exposition, and the Century of Progress Exposition. The top blue stripe represents Lake Michigan and the North branch of the Chicago River. The bottom blue stripe represents the South branch of the Chicago river and canal.
