The Official Cubs Flag

On Monday the Cubs raised flags for their 1907, 1908, and 2016 championships, along with the 2016 NL pennant.  It was a nice ceremony and it's great to see those flags flying.

But they missed a flag.


Did you know that the Cubs have an official team flag?  Apparently the team forgot.


This page is from my 1947 official program.  The Cubs flag has red stars for each NL pennant and blue stars for each World Series victory.

For years the Cubs flew this flag off of each of the foul poles.  They were removed when the team started retiring numbers and flew flags for those players instead.  That means its been at least 35 years since the offical Cubs flag flew over Wrigley Field.

While the team may have forgotten about it, I haven't.


Updated, with another red and blue star, the official Cubs flag!

  4. 3/16 isn't the greatest ratio. Let's fix that over these next couple of years!

  5. I didn't know they had a team flag... can't help but notice there's more room for red stars!
