The Illinois River is featured prominently in the bottom right corner to symbolize how our region’s growth flows from this resource. The yellow circle and the blue border form the letter “P,” representative of the County’s name. Blue represents water and the natural resources in our county. Green stands for our agricultural roots, an industry that is still significant in the area. Gold symbolizes our innovation across all industries in Peoria County.
The Peoria County Flag design was submitted by resident Aaron Broomfield during a community-wide contest. Of the three finalists, his design garnered 60% of the more than 1700 votes cast, and it was unveiled to the public at the Peoria Riverfront Museum on October 22, 2022. The flag was officially adopted at the November 10, 2022, Peoria County Board meeting.
