Chicago has a love affair with its flag - the banner combining 2 blue stripes with 4 red stars is a sign of local pride and seen all over our city, from being hung on front porches to emblazoned on our bodies with tattoos. The Trib claims that our obsession with the flag began in the 1990s, when several young people started flocking to the city. Regardless of when it started, one thing is clear - we love our flag more than most cities.

Items in our new Chicago flag apparel collection are perfect gifts for any Chicagoan, especially those who love to show their city pride.
