The Illinois flag is white and shows the Illinois state seal in the center. The seal is based on the state seal the coat of arms of the United States from 1810. The seal features an eagle with a banner in its beak sitting on a stone. On the stone are the dates 1868 and 1818, with the number 1818 referring to the founding of the state of Illinois. In the banner is the state motto, which reads, 'State sovereignty, national union'. This translates to State sovereignty, national union.
