The Gadsden flag is 100% heavyweight SolarMax nylon, the most durable nylon flag material available, so it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor display. Finished with strong canvas heading and solid brass grommets. Three x five feet.
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.
