California State Flag Represents

Learn Here What The Color of California State Flag Represents



The California State Flag was adopted in 1911 after the state was admitted into the United States years earlier in 1850.

The 31st state has a flag with a white background, red stripe at the bottom, a red star in the upper left corner, a bear in grass in the middle with the wording 'California Republic" under the picture of the bear.

The flag is known as the "Bear Flag" and the grizzly or bear as some refer to it represents courage. It is believed that the single star comes from the flag of Texas as the "Lone Star."

William Todd, who was the nephew of Abraham Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd, designed the first flag. However, the flag changed the position of the bear and the star, but kept the original design.
