The Gadsden Flag is traditionally flown by those who are in disagreement with government or in support of civil liberties. It has also been adopted by the U.S. Marine Corps as an early motto flag and a symbolism of American freedom. The Gadsden flag was first flown in early 1776 by Commodore Esek Hopkins; the first commander-in-chief of the Continental Fleet. Today, the flag is flown by those who are passionate about American freedom, any time of year or all throughout the year. The Gadsden Flag has been seen more after the September 11, 2001 terrorists attack, flown as a symbol of American freedom and liberty and often flown underneath the U.S. Flag.

History:

Benjamin Franklin is famous for his sense of humor. He created a yellow flag, displaying a rattlesnake and the motto: "Don't tread on me", representing his response towards the Brits when they sent convicted felons to America. In return, Franklin sent hundreds of rattle snakes to be released in England as a "thank you" for the added population of felons to America. This historical event is commonly remembered through the Gadsden Flag or often referred as the "Don't Tread on Me Flag".

The Gadsden Flag is named after Christopher Gadsden who was the American patriot that mulled around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during the 1700's, making contributions to American History. He did many things such as led the Sons of Liberty, was made colonel in the Continental Army, was a part of the Continental Congress, and eventually adopted the Gadsden flag as his personal standard, "Don't tread on me." Although Benjamin Franklin was the creator of the Gadsden Flag and established the overall meaning, Christopher Gadsden was the man who lived out the Gadsden flags true meaning.
