|Tenné or Tawny||
In 1995, Craig Byrnes came up with the idea of a Bears flag. With the help of Paul Witzkoske, the two asked people at a party to vote for the flag variants on display. The one with seven horizontal stripes and a bear paw (in the canton) was chosen as the winner and became the International Bear Brotherhood Flag. It is now copyrighted.
The colors in the flag are represent the colors of animal furs from around the world (from the top) – dark brown, rust, golden yellow, tan, white, grey and black. The hexadecimal, RGB and CMYK codes are in the table. The closest Pantone® values are 732 C (dark brown), 717 C (rust/orange), 113 C (golden yellow), 7499 C (tan) and Cool Grey 11 C (grey).
Note #1: The International Bear Brotherhood is also known as the gay flag or gay men’s flag.
Note #2: As pointed out by Benedetto in the comments (thank you), the flag also has a white stripe which lies between the tan and gray colors. The middle white stripe has been removed from our color scheme.
