Purple-red-purple vertical triband, with a ring of 8 white stars overlapping the three stripes.
The Chicago Heights flag was chosen during a contest to design a city emblem for the U.S. Bicentennial Celebration(1976). The stars represent the eight city neighborhoods--East Side, Beacon Hill, The Hill, West Side, Euclid Area, Bloom High School Area, North End, Country Club Area. The bands of color represent the three segments of the community--commercial, industrial, residential.
