National union and state sovereignty are the slogans of the
land of Lincoln, the State of Illinois. With Chicago
as the major city and Springfield as the capital, the state
boasts one of the most diverse populations in the United
States. Don't pronounce the 'S' in the title is what
these Illinois t-shirts say. They are a humorous look
at how outsiders mispronounce the name. The state
flower is depicted in the other Illinois t-shirts above.
The flower is the purple violet, which is seen prominently.
The Chicago Bears are the beloved sports team in Illinois
and even presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)
went on Monday Night Football to cheer them on.
