First Navy Jack Flag
First Navy Jack "Don't Tread On Me" is 100% SolarMax Nylon, the most durable nylon flag material available. It will stand up well to the wind and sun. Finished with canvas heading and solid brass grommets. 3' x 5', brilliant colors. Made in America by Annin Flagmakers, the nation's oldest and largest flag manufacturer. Annin has produced flags since 1847.
The First Navy Jack flag 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.
