Umzeichung der Originalflagge

Nach Ausbruch des mexikanisch-amerikanischen Krieges erklärten US-amerikanische Siedler 1846 die Unabhängigkeit von Kalifornien („Kalifornische Republik“ auch „Bear Flag Republic“) und hissten eine Flagge mit einem Grizzlybären sowie einem roten Stern auf weißem Grund. Seit 1911 ist die „Bear Flag“ die offizielle Staatsflagge Kaliforniens.
