Statewide counties and municipalities have been asked to coordinate an Illinois Bicentennial Flag Raising Ceremony at their primary municipal building on Monday, December 4, 2017 at 12:00 Noon CST to coincide with Ceremonies throughout the state.

As we approach our 200th year of statehood, these Ceremonies will help kickoff a yearlong celebration that will pay tribute to the people, places, and things that are being BORN, BUILT & GROWN here every single day. Our Bicentennial is a once-in-a-lifetime invitation to fall in love with Illinois all over again, and it will showcase Illinois’ influence on American history, achievement, culture, innovation, and more. Together, we can inspire pride in Illinois and show the world what makes this state so great.

The community is welcome to attend!
