Legend has it that when Duke Berchtold V founded Bern in 1191, he vowed to name the city after the first animal he killed while hunting in the surrounding forest. It turned out to be a bear. ‘Bern’ can be considered a derivation of ‘Bären’ (German for bears) and today bears are seen at every turn, on shop windows, fountains, doorknobs, and on the city’s coat of arms.

The correct answer is Bears.
