Illinois State Flags
The bald eagle represents the United States and within its beak is a streamer with the state motto. In the eagle's claw is a shield with thirteen bars and thirteen stars, representing the original thirteen states. The two dates on the rock are the dates of statehood and of the state seal. The ground under the bald eagle symbolize the state's rich prairie soil.
Illinois state flags are made in America of durable 100% SolarMax nylon, the strongest and most fade-resistant nylon material available.
