Add a Star to the Chicago Flag to Honor the Cubs World Series Victory

This petition had 98 supporters

The Chicago City Flag has four stars to commemorate historic events in city history. The events that are dedicated in the stars are as follows:

  1. Fort Dearborn
  2. Great Chicago Fire
  3. World's Columbian Exposition
  4. Century of Progress Exposition

It is possible to argue that the Cubs World Series victory wasn't as important as the founding of the city, the Great Chicago Fire or even the World's Fair. But, the Century of Progress Exposition...come on, the 3-1 comeback, extra inning game 7...the Cubs are at least as important as the second world's fair the city held. Who even remembers that?

Let's add a star, we deserve it. To be clear, the star probably shouldn't just be for the Cubs. Traditionally all six points of the star have meaning. My preference would be for the six points of the fifth start to signify greatness in Chicago Championship Sports:

  1. 2016 Cubs World Series
  2. Blackhawks Victories of the 2010s
  3. 2005 White Sox World Series
  4. The Series of Bulls Championships in the Late 90s
  5. 1985 Bears Superbowl
  6. 1998 Chicago Fire MLS Cup 

*The flag probably should not actually have the Cubs logo...just the star.
