First Navy Jack-Highlight The Message “DON’T TREAD ON ME”

The First Navy Jack has traditionally been depicted as consisting of thirteen red and white stripes charged with an uncoiled rattlesnake and the motto “DON’T TREAD ON ME”. It follows a tradition that dates back to 1880, when this design appeared in a color plate in Admiral George Henry Preble's influential History of the Flag of the United States. The rattlesnake had long been a symbol of resistance to the British in Colonial America. The rattlesnake has thirteen layers, signifying each of the original Thirteen Colonies while the phrase “DON’T TREAD ON ME” signifies the fact that the snake does not strike until provoked. Since September 11, 2001, the First Navy Jack has also been flown along with the national flag on an optional basis aboard U.S. Navy installations and facilities ashore.
