Dont Tread On Me Gadsden Flags. Also known as the Snake Flag.

First flown aboard one of the first ships in the United States Navy, the Alfred, on January 4th, 1776 making it the oldest recorded flag of the United States. Don't is spelled incorrectly as a historical fact as "Dont".

It is called the "Gadsden Flag" after the designer, Colonel Christopher Gadsden who presented it to the Commodore of the new U.S. Navy, Esek Hopkins. Thus the flag is also sometimes called the "Hopkins Flag".

We always have this flag in stock and would love to rush one or more to you today.

The Gadsden Flag is traditionally flown by those who are in disagreement with government or in support of civil liberties. It has also been adopted by the U.S. Marine Corps as an early motto flag and a symbolism of American freedom. The Gadsden flag was first flown in early 1776 by Commodore Esek Hopkins; the first commander-in-chief of the Continental Fleet. Today, the flag is flown by those who are passionate about American freedom, either on special occasions or throughout the year. The Gadsden Flag has been seen more after the September 11, 2001 terrorists attack, flown as a symbol of American freedom and liberty and often flown underneath the U.S. Flag.

History:

Benjamin Franklin was famous for his sense of humor. He created a yellow flag, displaying a rattlesnake and the motto: "Don't tread on me", representing his response towards the Brits when they sent convicted felons to America. In return, Franklin sent hundreds of rattlesnakes to be released in England as a "thank you" for the added population of felons to America. This historical event is commonly remembered through the Gadsden Flag or often referred to, "Don't Tread on Me Flags".

The Gadsden Flag is named after Christopher Gadsden who was the American patriot that mulled around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during the 1700's, making contributions to American history. He did many things such as led the Sons of Liberty, was made colonel in the Continental Army, was a part of the Continental Congress, and eventually adopted the Gadsden flag as his personal standard. Although Benjamin Franklin was the creator of the Gadsden Flag and established the overall meaning, Christopher Gadsden was the man who lived out the Gadsden flag’s true meaning.
