Symbolism and significance of the Chicago Flag

The three white stripes symbolize the North, West, and South sides. The top blue stripe represents Lake Michigan and the North Branch of the Chicago River. The bottom blue stripe represents the South Branch of the river and the canal.

The four stars represent major historical events. The first is Fort Dearborn, the second is the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the third is the World's Columbian Expedition of 1893, and the fourth star represents the 2nd world's fair (Century of Progress Exposition) of 1933-34. The six points on the stars symbolize transportation, labor, commerce, finance, populousness, and healthfulness.
