Did you know…? June, 2020

Now that we’re all in Phase 3, and we’re looking to stretch our legs some more, I thought it would be a fun opportunity to share this fascinating bit of history with you! Many of us are familiar with Chicago’s flag, but the Y, be it direct or reversed, is just as much a symbol of the city, and it’s also all over the place! Here’s where the actual Y in the design comes from. When you start looking for it, you won’t be able to stop seeing it. What a fun idea for a scavenger hunt!

Check out some more pictures here to get you started with your hunt.
