One Illinois lawmaker wants a new state flag, and he wants you to design it. State Rep. Daniel Didech is pushing to create a state flag contest that would have people across the state design a new state flag by 2023. He’s not saying what’s wrong with Illinois’ current state flag. But, don’t be in a rush to get out the crayons and paper, Didech’s proposal hasn’t been assigned for a vote yet.
