Flag of Illinois

The first Illinois flag was officially adopted in 1915, a result of the efforts of Mrs. Ella Park Lawrence and the Daughters of American Revolution. Miss Lucy Derwent's design was selected from among 35 entries submitted by chapters of the D.A.R. The flag features the central image of the state seal on a field of white. In 1969 the current flag was approved (the word ILLINOIS was added).
