History

The Bear Flag is the official flag of the state of California. The precursor of the flag was first flown during the 1846 Bear Flag Revolt and was also known as the Bear Flag. The original Grizzly Bear Flag was designed by Peter Storm in anticipation of ending oppressive Mexican rule over the Free and Sovereign State of California, for all time. [0]

Meaning

The single red star represents the 1836 California Lone Star Flag. The bear is a reminiscence of the Bear Flag.
