California has quite a few state symbols, from the State Mineral (Gold) to the State Motto (Eureka!) and many things in between. Claremont has a City Flower (the Sticky Monkey Flower), but I’m not sure there are any other official symbols. Claremontography will put forth occasional suggestions for consideration.
The California State Reptile is the Desert Tortoise, but since there are very few living in Claremont, the reptile that suggests itself for our fair city could be the Western Fence Lizard. At least, I presume that’s what I see any time I walk through the streets.
