Social Awareness

Colors: Blue, red, green, and yellow
Meanings/Symbolism: The blue represents the waters of Cook County (Lake Michigan, the Chicago River, etc.). It also represents freedom. Red represents leadership. Green represents peace and forest preserves and nature. The 6-pointed star represents the 6 regions of Cook County. The yellow line down the middle is not a line of separation, but a line of connection bringing together the diverse people of the city. The yellow lines as well as the red and green lines connect the whole region with our highway system. The lines also represent love spreading out throughout the county.
