More than 150 years after it was first created, California's storied "Bear Flag" is undergoing some changes.

"The bear had a great run, but we wanted something that symbolized the outdoor lifestyle that our state is known for," said California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. "So we put the bear on a bicycle."

Schwarzenegger also pointed out that the new bear isn't exactly sober. "That's no accident – he's a little bit tipsy," he said. "That's a nod to our state's unparalleled abundance of wineries."

California is also considering a ballot initiative in November on whether to change the official state flower from the California Poppy to the Humboldt Sticky-Icky
