The flag of the Village of Schaumburg, Illinois, is yellow with village logo on it and "SCHAUMBURG-ILLINOIS" below it.
Derivation of the Village of Schaumburg Logo:
The “S” is formed of four willow leaves - one leaf represents the residents of Schaumburg, one represents nature and the remaining two leaves represent business and industry. The "S" is placed on a five petal heraldic rose which was derived from the coat of arms of Schuamburg-Lippe, Germany from which many of our early settlers came. This is surrounded by 10 more willow leaves representing the continuous effort that is expressed by the Village through the theme "Progress Through Thoughtful Planning" which is in keeping with the continuous effort by the Village of Schaumburg to maintain a balance between its people, nature, business and industry.
