Gadsden "Don't Tread On Me" Flag Nylon
Proudly Made In America
Long a symbol of fierce independence, the Gadsden flag has become the symbol of the Libertarian/Tea Party movement. It is seen at Tea Party and Libertarian rallies across America and decorates the homes of Libertarians and Tea Partiers. The Gadsden flag is 100% heavyweight SolarMax nylon, the most durable nylon flag material available, so it is fit for both indoor and outdoor display. Finished with strong canvas heading and solid brass grommets.
Created by southern Colonel Christopher Gadsden, and flown by the original Continental Navy, the words "Don't Tread On Me" were America's answer to Britain as it fought against coercive measures. The words and rattlesnake made a clear case - it will be as dangerous to tread on America as it would be to tread on a rattler. The Tea Party and Libertarian movements have adopted the Gadsden flag to further their own causes.
