The BEAR is one of the National Animals of Ukraine.

The Bear is wise, strong, and independent.  His awakening in spring is a symbol of renewal and a new life cycle.

The Ursa Major "The Great Bear" is one of the most important constellations in the night sky, and it has been part of the imaginary of Mankind through ages. Ursa Major is not a constellation per se, but it is an asterism, which means a collection of Fixed Stars.

Seven stars form the Big Dipper, the well-known asterism in Ursa Major, which is among the oldest recognized patterns in the sky. 

A recurring theme that runs through mythology is the kinship of bears and humans. Ursa Major, in its travels throughout the heavens, constantly changes from quadrupedal to bipedal positions, seeming to run along on all fours nearest the horizon and then rising to its hind feet to begin the ascent back into the sky. There have been many fairy tales and fantasies written about people taking the form of bears. In some cultures bears are regarded as gods.
