Description

The Bear Flag Museum is a nonprofit, virtual museum/library dedicated to collecting at one location all information about the California Bear Flag. Our hope is for the Bear Flag Museum to continue developing into a premier site for all information, art, images, textual materials, articles, links related to the California Bear Flag. Beyond growing the website's information and images, we hope to become a center for continuing research and writing related to the history of the California Bear Flag since 1846. We hope to become a significant resource for schools and teachers in the education of California students. Ultimately, we hope to create a physical museum for the California Bear Flag. The Bear Flag Museum was developed in the Fall 2006 and originally came online in January 2007. The museum's collection is based on approximately 20 years of collecting materials related to the Bear Flag by the museum's Executive Director. We are also on Facebook at FRIENDS OF THE CALIFORNIA BEAR FLAG and at http://bearflagmuseum.blogspot.com/
