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.

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.
