This is the back of the tardigrade hoodie, "The Bohart Republic" water bear flag. It's available in the gift shop at the Bohart Museum of Entomology. The art, reminiscent of the California Bear Flag, is by Charlotte Herbert Alberts, an entomology doctoral student. The Bohart has its own bear "water bear" flag! (Photo by Fran Keller)

The California Bear Flag features a grizzly bear, while the Bohart Republic flag features another bear, a water bear. The California State Legislature adopted the  official version of the Bear Flag in 1911 in a law signed by then Gov. Hiram Johnson in 1911.
