On the upper fly is a white map of the state of Illinois outlined in black. The geographic location of Coffeen is marked on the map. In the upper hoist is a red barn with a fence. Below the fence is what appears to be a family of two sons and a daughter plus parents. A red public building of some sort is in the lower-left hand corner of the flag. In the middle of the flag is a water tower with the word COFFEEN in green. In the lower-right hand corner of the flag is a factory alongside a river, and a black silhouette of Abraham Lincoln is next to the map.

At is a large black&white partial photo of the city flag of Danville, Illinois. It is white or at least a very light color with the words DANVILLE ILLINOIS on 2 lines at the fly half, with the city seal set on 5 vertical stripes at the hoist half- the stripes are fly to hoist: 1-a thin medium color, 2- a wide stripe of the field color, 3- a thin stripe of a darker color, 4- another stripe of the field color, about a third or a quarter of the width of the wide stripe, and 5- another stripe of medium color, about the same width as the 4th stripe. A good graphic of the seal can be seen at but not it is clear that the seal on the flag does not use the full color scheme shown in this image. It must also be noted that the wording around the seal differs between the linked image and the one shown on the flag. And the seal on the flag has the year 1827 in the shield's chief while the other image has a device like a beehive. Also it may be of interest to note that the caption on the photo states the city flag was aboard the space shuttle Atlantis in an orbital mission in November 1994.

Sleepy Hollow

The two officials are seated in the room in the village hall in which the board meets. On one wall is an oil painting of Falese; on another is the village flag, a delightful declaration that here is a place that shuns pretense. The central symbol in the red-white-blue-and-brown standard is the Headless Horseman (the horse is brown). ''People are always asking for copies of our flag,'' Peterson said. ''They don't know we have only one.''

The History Behind the City Flag
"On March 12, 1992 the original city flag was presented to the United City of Yorkville. The concept of the original United City of Yorkville flag was a result of a contest sponsored by Tom Hughes (former owner of the Pride Gas Station), the Yorkville Chamber of Commerce and the United City of Yorkville. Local artist, Holly Willson was selected as the winning designer of the original flag. Holly also volunteered her time to expedite production of the flag. Only two original flags were produced. One flag flew in front of City Hall, and the other was presented to Holly as a contest prize. The original flag was never officially approved by the City Council.
        Several years ago, the City Council entertained the idea of creating a new design of the city flag to act as a symbol which would honor the United City of Yorkville. It was decided that the new flag would present an altered, updated version of the official city seal. Rose Spears, Ward 4 Alderwoman and Chairperson of the Administration Committee, volunteered to expedite the creation and production of the new city flag. Once again Holly Willson was contacted to create the artwork of the suggested design. The new flag design includes the name of the city, county seat information, the historical County Courthouse, the Glen Palmer Dam, the Fox River, and the Town Square Park's Perpetual Flame monument.
        In March 2002, the newly created flag was approved by the City Council. The official 3' by 5' foot, screen printed flags are for sale to residents and businesses for $65.00. It is the intent that the flags will be proudly flown throughout the United City of Yorkville as well as Kenda11 County as a symbol of honoring our outstanding community.
        On June 24, 2002, Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert was presented a flag by Mayor Arthur Prochaska and Alderwoman Rose Spears on behalf of the United City of Yorkville. "
