On a white field, a golden ring with illegible text, over which is an eagle in flight, carrying a map of Illinois in its claws. The date 1835 is split by the eagle-map emblem, as is text below it. In the upper fly and upper hoist
are two gold stars. Across the bottom of the field is a broad green stripe with the words DES PLAINES. A slightly larger view of the central emblem can be seen on this image.
