In 2002 the U.S. Secretary of the Navy established the First Navy Jack as a symbol of the War on Terror for the U.S. Navy. As of September 11, 2002, all naval ships now fly the First Navy Jack.
The First Navy Jack was flown by the first Continental Navy in 1775; it was used as a signal between ships to engage the enemy. The design features a rattlesnake and the warning “DON’T TREAD ON ME” on a background of thirteen alternating red and white stipes.
Our First Navy Jack features:
- Screen-dyed design
- Crisp, strong nylon material
