I found this website which describes the Municipal Flag of Chicago. It is not unusual for a city to have its own flag, usually you only see them at municipal buildings (city hall), but in Chicago the flag is much more prevelant. Follow this link for more info. inficad.com Just thought maybe you would like to known what everything on the Chicago flag represents. The 2 blue stripes are for the 2 bodies of water in the area, lake Michigan and the Chicago River. The 3 white stripes are for the three areas of the city where people live, the north, south, and west side. Then there are 4 stars. 1 star represents, fort Dearborn, another represents The Great Chicago Fire, and the last 2 represent both Both of the World Fairs Chicago hosted.

The raising of the white flag at Wrigley Field means that the Cubs have won. The flag has a blue W on it, meaning win. The flag is raised immediately after the game and is taken down a few hours later.

One of the traditions of Wrigley Field is the flying of a flag bearing a "W" or an "L" atop the scoreboard after a game ... a white flag with a blue "W" indicates a victory; a blue flag with a white "L" denotes a loss.

On the Chicago Flag, each point represents a virtue or concept. Chicago used the six pointed star because it was not used in any US City flag and as usual they wanted to make the point that they were just a little bit different.
