First Navy Jack - Nylon

First Navy Jack - Nylon


First Navy Jack "Don't Tread On Me" has long been a symbol of the American spirit.  First flown by Commodore Esek Hopkins, the thirteen stripes, representing the thirteen colonies, are crossed by a Timber Rattlesnake, something that will not strike unless provoked.  The words "Don't Tread On Me" drive home the point - you will be warned first, then struck if you do not back off.  All U.S. ships now fly the First Navy Jack for the duration of the War on Terrorism, in honor of those killed on September 11, 2001.

Three x five feet, finished with canvas heading and solid brass grommets.
