Show pride as a Chicago native, Chicago resident, or Chicago transplant with this powerful design that superimposes the iconic flag of The Windy City against a raised fist of resistance icon.
The raised fist is a universal symbol of resistance, solidarity, and empowerment. Historically associated with various social and political movements, it represents unity, strength, and defiance against oppression or injustice. Over the years, this gesture has transcended cultural and geographical boundaries, becoming an emblematic sign for people advocating for change, justice, and equality worldwide.
The Chicago flag features two blue horizontal stripes on a white field, with four red, six-pointed stars in between. The blue stripes symbolize Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, while the stars represent significant events in the city's history: Fort Dearborn; the 1871 Great Chicago Fire; the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893; and the Century of Progress Exposition of 1933-34.
This design of protest and empowerment is great to wear during events in Chicago, including on picket lines, during political rallies, election events, and other civic minded occasions. It looks great on the women's v-neck shirt featured here. There are other apparel options featuring this design highlighted below.
