The First Navy Jack Flag by Steve Berger
Flag History: Much debate has arisen about whether or not the First Navy Jack flag was flown by Commodore Esek Hopkins on the Alfred, flagship of the Continental fleet, in January,1776. Described as a "strip’’’’d jack" in the "Signals for the American Fleet," the flag could have been the First Navy Jack or just a plain red and white striped jack that was commonly used by American merchant ships. Conceived by Commodore Hopkins in 1775, the First Navy Jack is shown as having 13 alternating red and white stripes with an uncoiled rattlesnake and the "Don’’’’t Tread on Me" motto. It wasfirst used as a signal to engage the enemy. Using the rattlesnake image on a flag shows unity and power or it can be conceived as a threat. The image is meant as a warning that America will attack when provoked.
