I recall the debate with the State Park Rangers about the choice of flag. There is not nor has there ever been any reasonable justification in flying a current issue Mexican flag there. The mere fact that someone has produced a flag that is correct for the period being depicted is a testement to that...

But with threats of budget cuts closing state parks, I wonder if this repentance from bad form is a little too late...

I don't think so. This fort is a favorite spot of school field trips, and possesses the strategic and historical significance that the Regional Government proponents need to further their goals in this area. I see the flag changing as a buffering of their previously harsh approach to mexicafornia. This way, they get to keep showing the kids that mexico and California are blood brothers whose history and culture make an ideal match for unification, without the bold and blatant symbolism that the current flag conjures up. It's going to be all roses and lilacs now, with Mexico being the beaten nation that California has taken under their wing in these difficult financial times.

Is anyone going to tell those kids that the Spanish soldiers who came to California in 1769 aren't the same people who are coming from Mexico now?

Many of those Spanish soldiers were convicts who had a choice of death or being a soldiers in California. Then these convicts caused problems with the female natives.......

I did a senior thesis project in college and read the journals of the friars of the Mission San Gabriel. They logged quite a few rebellions caused by these soldiers crimes against the native women. Plus the STD's they spread. The sick went to the mission, and it was recorded.

Now we need to work on getting a Bear Flag up!
