The California State Flag, also known as the “Bear Flag,” features an assortment of black acrylics. This design features hand assembled components featuring a black opaque background with matte black bear, letters, and bottom bar.
Our blacked out state flags add that subtle touch of state pride for its citizens. These subdued designs are the perfect compliment to anyone looking to maintain a monochromatic look on their vehicle. They are a great alternative to our full color flags.
The Bear Flag is the official flag of the U.S. 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. A predecessor, called the Lone Star Flag, was used in an 1836 independence movement; the red star element from that flag appears in the Bear Flag of today.
The Flag was adopted in 1911 by state statute.
The bear flag is hereby selected and adopted as the state flag of California. The said bear flag shall consist of a flag of a length equal to one and one-half the width thereof; the upper five-sixths of the width thereof to be a white field, and the lower sixth of the width thereof to be a red stripe; there shall appear in the white field in the upper left-hand corner a single red star, and at the bottom of the white field the words ‘California Republic,’ and in the center of the white field a California grizzly bear upon a grass plat, in the position of walking toward the left of the said field; said bear shall be dark brown in color and in length, equal to one-third of the length of said flag.
