Chicago is the third most populous city in the United States and the most populous city in the American Midwest.
Chicago, known colloquially as «Second City» or «Windy City», has the third-largest number of residents in the United States (with approximately 2.7 million residents), behind New York and L.A.
Seal of Illinois
The dates on the seal, 1818 and 1868 represent the year Illinois became a state and the year in which the Great Seal was redesigned by Sharon Tyndale.
Flag of Chicago
The three white stripes of the flag represent, from top to bottom, the North, West and South sides of the city.
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 river and the Great Canal.
There are four red six-pointed stars on the center white stripe.
From left to right :
1º --Represents Fort Dearborn. --The original fort was destroyed following the Battle of Fort Dearborn in 1812, and a new fort was constructed on the same site in 1816.Its six points symbolize transportation, labor, commerce, finance, populousness, and salubrity.
2º --The second star stands for the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Its six points represent the virtues of religion, education, aesthetics, justice, beneficence, and civic pride.The Great Chicago Fire was a conflagration that burned from Sunday, October 8, to early Tuesday, October 10, 1871, killing hundreds and destroying about 3.3 square miles (9 km) in Chicago, Illinois.Though the fire was one of the largest U.S. disasters of the 19th century, the rebuilding that began helped develop Chicago as one of the most populous and economically important American cities.
3º --The third star symbolizes the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. Its six points stand for political entities Chicago has belonged to and the flags that have flown over the area: France 1693, Great Britain 1763, Virginia 1778, the Northwest Territory 1798, Indiana Territory 1802, and Illinois 1818.
4º --The fourth star represents the Century of Progress Exposition. A Century of Progress International Exposition was the name of a World's Fair held in Chicago from 1933 to 1934 to celebrate the city's centennial. The theme of the fair was technological innovation. The fair's motto was "Science Finds, Industry Applies, Man Conforms"; its architectural symbol was the Sky Ride, a transporter bridge perpendicular to the shore on which one could ride from one side of the fair to the other.
