The Bear Flag Legacy

Gary Smith’s great great grandmother worked to design the Grizzly Bear Flag which was raised in Sonoma, California, in June of 1846. His great great grandmother, a veracious humanitarian sought the best for all that she encountered, often putting others interests above her own. This inspired Gary to use Bear Flag as the company name and this legacy of his great great grandmother rings true to this day in the core values that Bear Flag Insurance stands for.
