Six Red Stars and Yellow and Green Stripes

The blue background of this flag represents all the water in the county (the lake and rivers) while the 6 stars red stars represent the 6 geographic regions and make reference to the red stars in the Chicago flag since it is the county seat. The red also represents the health care provided in Cook County and the green stripe represents the forest preserve. I also decided to include a yellow stripe to represent the yellow that was present in the old Cook County flag.
