Thanks for the suggestion, Phil; but no; I actually want the group name and not the variable name (because I later want to remove the label on the category axis due to space considerations). The problem is that the group label is incorrect once there is more than one yvar.

By specifying -blabel(group)- you have asked Stata to label the bars with 
the value labels of the first (and in your case, only)  over()  variable, 
that is, foreign.

Specifying -blabel(name)- will get you closer to what I think you want.

see help graph -- bar --blabel_options
