Description of the flag

In 2008, the City Clerk's Office reported that Evanston, Illinois, did not have an actual municipal flag, only a logo. There were no plans to develop a municipal flag; the only flags used on public buildings are the S&S, the Illinois state flag, and the Cook County flag.

The Township was founded in April 2, 1850 originally as Ridgeville Township. On February 15, 1857, its name was changed to Evanston Township in accordance to the Illinois General Assembly. The flag of Evanston Township was used from an unknown date until March 18, 2014 when the township was abolished and the City of Evanston took over the Township's administrative duties.

The flag was a diagonal bicolor field of blue-white-blue. In the center was the township seal. Under the seal was the slogan "PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE" split in white and blue. On either side of the slogan were a group of 7 orange stick figures, representing unity.
