Bear Pride 3

The International Bear Brotherhood flag was introduced by Craig Byrnes at the Bears of Summer even in July of 1995. This design was actually one of 4 that the event attendees were asked to vote on in order to choose an official bear flag. Having won the vote, the IBB flag was officially unveiled and given to the community in early 1996.

The colors were chosen specifically to cover the spectrum of fur colors, and nationalities, of bears to insure the inclusion of all bears worldwide under this flag.
