It is not generally known that it was Abraham Lincoln's nephew who drew the bear on the first California State Flag. And he did such a poor job that people asked him "What is that? A pig?"

The bear on the flag is a Grizzly Bear. There used to be Grizzly Bears throughout the state, including in the San Francisco Bay Area. For better or worse, now there are no grizzly bears left in the state and the huge subspecies California Grizzly Bear is extinct. There are only black bears in the state now.
