Description

The city flag honors the mother-daughter relationship with Bern, Switzerland. The flag's bear motif, which dates from the Middle Ages, can be found on city buildings, vehicles, and uniforms. The original flag, a gift from the residents of Bern in 1896, is on display in the courtroom of City Hall.

The bear on the flag is a male bear, that is for the official flag. There is a politically correct bear flag used in New Bern, and that same bear is used by the high school for years. The owner of Bern Bear Gifts, Inc. told me things about the New Bern flag. He told me that Bern, Switzerland had that same debate a few years ago. They decided to stick with "Papa", the male bear, and he used this saying "It is a papa bear and always will be a papa bear." To my delight, I bought a New Bern flag to display on my TV. So in final, the Bern, Switzerland flag is the flag of New Bern, North Carolina.
