pictures[edit]

This article needs at least one picture of the city waterfront or something along that line. Does anyone have a pic?--AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 02:46, 28 January 2008 (UTC)


Bears, Flag[edit]

It's a subtle thing but it "bears" mentioning. The Bern flag features an obviously male bear. New Bern's flag has been altered to represent either an emasculated male bear or a female one. I don't know why this was done, but close examination of the flags on this article and the one for Bern, Switzerland will confirm this to be true. Therefore, technically, Bern and New Bern do not share a flag, but their flags are similar. Scott Johnson (talk) 21:14, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Bern=Bear?[edit]

Just wanted to let you know that the word bern doesnt mean bear in german its just similar to the german word for bear which is Bär... Pls excuse my bad english... Greetings from Bern/Switzerland 194.230.159.115 (talk) 02:50, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Just ran across this. You are right. That was part of several edits by an anonymous IP. Will take that out. Article probably needs someone to go through it carefully. Will see what I can do when I have time. Anyone else who knows the area more, please edit. Thank you. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 03:43, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Historical firsts paragraph[edit]

I just took out the "historical firsts" paragraph from the article. It was completely unreferenced, some of it seems like it might not be that notable and was not formatted well. It showed up as a paragraph, but in the markup, it looks like someone intended for it to be a list. Think it would be too cumbersome as a list and really not necessary. Prose format would be preferable. Also, if someone thinks is should go back in, it could stand to be re-worded a good bit and made more specific. Some of the info was kind of vague. And definitely needs references if any of it is to be put back in. Thank you. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 05:39, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
