Adopted in 1917, it initially had two stars, until 1933 when a third was added. The four star version has existed since 1939. The three sections of the white field and the two bars represent geographical features of the city, the stars symbolize historical events, and the points of the stars represent important virtues or concepts. The historic events represented by the stars are the establishment of Fort Dearborn, the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, and the Century of Progress Exposition of 1933-34.
In a review of 150 American city flags, the Chicago city flag was ranked second best.
