The "California Republic" lay across the street and to the right of the entrance to the Davis Regal Theater, and to the left of the garage entrance. It was an abstract replica of the California State flag.

The "California Republic" Bench appeared as if the white field of the flag were draped atop the bench and the red band a the bottom draped over the front edge.

The Star Moved

The red star was attached to the wall behind the bench, so it appeared to move in relationship to the bench, as one walked by.

The bear on the California flag was embossed on the bench's surface and stood straight up. Its rough outline and body color were created from mosaic tiles.

The Back

A view of the back of the bench. Not only did it appear dim compared to the sunlit street, but it also appeared less decorated.
