Historical Gadsden Flag

This historical Gadsden flag is made of highly durable 200-Denier Nylon material. This is the most popular quality choice in flags today, as it provides extra durability and flies in a slight breeze.

The Gadsden flag is one of the most iconic flags in U.S. history. Devised by Colonel Christopher Gadsden, the rattlesnake image of the Gadsden flag was considered America's symbol at the time. 

The phrase "Don't Tread On Me" was also a product of the times and was said to be a response to the words of Lord North, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, who vowed not to rest until his coercive measures brought America to his feet.

The “Flag Code” includes instruction and rules on such topics as the display and use of the flag by civilians, time and occasions for display, position and manner of display, and how to show respect for the American flag.

 Notes for flag care:

Exposing your flag to rain, wind, snow or high winds will shorten the life of your flag considerably. If you leave your flag exposed to the elements, it will greatly reduce the life of your flag.

We recommend that you hand-wash your flag with mild soap, rinse thoroughly and air dry. You can also use a dry cleaning service.

Flag History:

By 1775, the snake symbol wasn't just being printed in newspapers. It was appearing all over the colonies: on uniform buttons, on paper money, and of course, on banners and flags.

The snake symbol morphed quite a bit during its rapid, widespread adoption. It wasn't cut up into pieces anymore. And it was usually shown as an American timber rattlesnake, not a generic serpent.

We don't know for certain where, when, or by whom the familiar coiled rattlesnake was first used with the warning "Don't Tread on Me."

We do know when it first entered the history books.

In the fall of 1775, the British were occupying Boston and the young Continental Army was holed up in Cambridge, woefully short on arms and ammunition. At the Battle of Bunker Hill, Washington's troops had been so low on gunpowder that they were ordered "not to fire until you see the whites of their eyes."
