The California state flag is called the Bear Flag with the Grizzly Bear representing courage. The single star may have come from the "lone star" on the flag of the Republic of Texas. Originally governed by Mexico, settlers declared their independence in 1848. The war with Mexico soon followed and the United States prevailed. California became a state the very next year.
