Illinois State Grass

Illinois State Grass

Nowhere will you find more avid grass fans than Illinois, the Prairie State. Big bluestem is the official grass, while corn, sweet corn, and popcorn are the official grain, vegetable, and snack food, respectively.

On the Illinois state flag proposal pictured above, green represents Illinois’ native savanna grasslands and agriculture, while the ear of corn represents … well, corn, which was domesticated by Native Americans.
