The California State Flag we know today is an adaptation of an earlier flag, created by William Todd in June of 1846. This earlier flag was created by a group of settlers fighting against the rule of Mexico, as events surrounding the "Bear Flag Revolt" were documented by settler John Bidwell.
The original flag was eventually destroyed in the Great Earthquake and fire of 1906, and in 1911 California adopted its current state flag, based upon the original Bear Flag. It was later determined the star was a representative of the lone star of Texas, the centered grizzly for the state's abundance of the animal, and the words "California Republic" as a reminder of the strong Americans who settled the area.
