HISTORY OF THE GADSDEN FLAG:
The 1775 Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a timber rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike.
The use of the phrase "Don't Tread On Me" was a rallying call for American patriots who stood in defiance of the British Empire who ruled the original 13 colonies. These idealistic patriots viewed the British government and the British Crown as unjust and tyrannical.
“Don’t Tread On Me” is a warning that reflects the basic principle of individual freedom; that people want to be left alone to live their own lives without outside interference. The rattlesnake on the Gadsen flag, used by the Continental Marines, reflects that in the real world.
This patch only represents a symbol for the American Revolution “The origins of ‘Don’t Tread On Me" were completely, one hundred percent anti-British, and pro-revolution. Indeed, that E.E.O.C. directive agrees, “It is clear that the Gadsden Flag originated in the Revolutionary War in a non-racial context.”
