Embrace your state pride with this Weathered Illinois State Flag!
The current flag depicts the Great Seal of Illinois, which was originally designed in 1819 and emulated the Great Seal of the United States. In the eagle’s beak there is a banner with the state motto, "State Sovereignty, National Union." The dates on the seal, 1818 and 1868, represent the year Illinois became a state and the year in which the Great Seal was redesigned by Sharon Tyndale. Although "State Sovereignty" comes first in the motto, Illinois was victorious in the American Civil War on the Union side, fighting against state sovereignty, so Tyndale placed "State" at the bottom and "Sovereignty" upside-down.[
Made of wooden distressed panels and painted with meticulous detail, this piece is sure to catch everyone’s eye!
This distressed flag would be great for a vintage house or bring a cool touch of rustic to a modern space.
Due to the nature of the wood and my handmade technique of distressing it, each piece is uniquely different.
