Chicago Flag Tattoo

The stars that we see here are NOT Stars of David but three out of the four red hexagrams that adorn the Chicago Flag. These stars stand for: 
Fort Dearborn
The Great Chicago Fire
The  World's Columbian Exposition of 1893
The Century of Progress Exposition in 1933
Each point of each star stands for a certain meaning like: transportation, labor, commerce etc.
