Designed in 1775 during the American Revolution by General Christopher Gadsden, this flag was used by the Continental Marines as a motto flag. The timber rattlesnake shakes its rattle so you can avoid getting bit. In today’s society, it is still the same “don’t step on or take advantage of Americans or they may strike back”. This 6" x 9" flag is double sided and is designed with a sleeve to fit 3/8" flag poles. Comes with o-ring to keep flag flying high.
