Gadsden Flag History:
The rattlesnake flags were the product of the southern colonies. One of the first of these was the Gadsden Flag, devised by Colonel Christopher Gadsden, a patriot of South Carolina, and presented to Congress with the expressed desire that it be designated as the flag of the Commander of the American Navy. Congress thanked him for the idea and discussed Benjamin Franklin’s analysis of the Rattlesnake, but declined to incorporate it into law. It is claimed that the Gadsden Flag was flown on the “Alfred” as the personal banner of commander Esek Hopkins, Commander of the American Navy. It was run up by John Paul Jones. The words “Don’t Tread on Me” were evolved from an incident of the times. Lord North had declared that he would never relax his coercive measures until he had brought America to his feet. The sentence is an answer to his Highness and a warning as well. It said, that should he accomplish his purpose, it would be as dangerous to tread on America as it would be to tread on her symbol – the American rattler.

    Gadsden Flag SKU: hifGadsden[in]12x18N

    Nice image, double stitched edges, printed on one side so grommets are on the left. Printing feels smooth, not raised. Can see through flag when held up to light because of fabric type.

    backwards on reverse

    It should be clearly stated that this flag is backward on the reverse, and that this is "standard on flags made in the U.S." as the customer service person informed me. It's a nice flag, though.

    Not as high quality as the Tex flag but still a nice flag to fly. The best part about it is it's American made. A bit expensive for quality.
