Joseph Warren Revere from  The Pioneer during the year 1878 from Bear Flag Related Statements from History of Sonoma County, republished 1973 by Charmaine Burdell Veronda.

     So many accounts of the manufacture of this insignia have been published that we give the reader those quoted by the writer in The Pioneer:
     Of this matter Lieutenant Revere says; “A flag was also hoisted bearing a grizzly bear rampant, with one stripe below, and the word ‘Republic of California,’ above the bear, and a single star in the union.”  This is the evidence of the officer who hauled down the Bear flag and replaced it with the Stars and Stripes on July 9, 1846.
