in the background of the flag, I placed the same color of blue as the Chicago flag and to represent Lake Michigan. By adding the same color as the Chicago flag, I wanted people to somewhat link the flags together to know what county it represents. Next, I put two green diagonal lines to represent the forest preserves. I then added a bordered circle to represent unity amongst the diverse residents who live in cook county. The two lred lines represent health care. The six six sided stars represent the six regions of cook county.
