Our Chicago City Flag is ubiquitous. It seems it is everywhere, on municipal buildings, arenas, lampposts, banks, police and firefighter uniforms, everywhere.
But do we know our flag’s meaning? Those stars must be there for a reason. And the stripes, are they more than mere decoration?
Your June Puzzler question is:
The Chicago Flag has four stars. What do the stars represent?
For extra credit, here are some additional questions:
Do the blue stripes represent anything? And if so, what do they stand for? Worth 15 points.
Which star was added most recently? Be careful, this could be a trick. Worth 25 points.
And finally, for you trivia buffs out there, what does each point on each star represent? Worth 11.5 points.
