Trivia (via Wikipedia):

Charles C. Nahl, using Adams' grizzlies as models for his depictions, made some drawings, etchings and paintings of grizzly bears in various scenes. His 1855 painting of a California grizzly bear, displaying the likeness of Adams' bear, 'Samson' the mountain man had brought to San Jose and San Francisco to display that year, ended up being the bear image used during the creation of the flags for California.
