Oak Star

At the focal point of my flag, I made a six pointed star to represent the city of Chicago. The star is made out of six white oak leaves connected together. White oak is the state tree and goes together with green half of the flag to symbolize the counties extensive forest preserves. The six sided star represents the six geographical regions of the county.The blue represents the lake which borders the eastern portion of the county. The top yellow portion of the star is made to look like a rising sun over the lake. The White portion of the flag is meant to represent the cleanliness of the county.
