The troops under General George Washington’s command drew up the Gadsden flag for a mission that involved getting some dang arms from British cargo ships coming to supply their own troops.
“I observed on one of the drums belonging to the marines now raising, there was painted a Rattle-Snake, with this modest motto under it, ‘Don’t tread on me.’ As I know it is the custom to have some device on the arms of every country, I supposed this may have been intended for the arms of America.”
And while this flag comes from Don’t Tread on Me, I think it could also mean Don't Tread on Each Other. There's been enough bickering over the years. Let’s get off each other’s backs.
