green bullet Modern meaning
Though historically a very negative symbol associated with things like greed and evil, the bear today has a much improved image. Usually associated with the great outdoors, strength or cuteness, the latter largely thanks to teddy bears and pandas. Bears are often seen in sports-related logos.

Historically the bear has been used as the symbol of Russia and of Persia.
