Picture of the Day
The California state flag consists of a white background with a grizzly bear above the words “California Republic” and a red stripe; in the upper hoist corner is a single red star. The flag was designed by William Todd (nephew of Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of Abraham Lincoln), and officially adopted as the state flag of California in 1911. The bear on the original flag was modeled after the last California grizzly bear in captivity. The bear, named "Monarch", was captured in 1889 by newspaper reporter Allen Kelley, at the behest of William Randolph Hearst.
