Looking for a fun Flag Patch to add to your jacket? If you want something a little different, there's this Subdued Gadsden Flag Patch. It features the historical Gadsden Flag of a rattlesnake with the words 'Don't Tread On Me' below it. This flag has a long history of use, and it has recently become popular again as a symbol of the Tea Party. The flag was created by American statesman and general Christopher Gadsden.
The rattlesnake had been used by the early U.S. settlers and citizens of the original thirteen colonies for years. Benjamin Franklin suggested the colonists send rattlesnakes to England in retaliation for the British sending prisoners to the colonies. He later featured the rattlesnake in the first political cartoon to ever appear in an American newspaper.
In 1775, Gadsden introduced the rattlesnake on a yellow flag as the personal standard of Commodore Esek Hopkins' flagship. While the Gadsden flag was considered one of the first U.S. flags, it was never made the official flag of the Union. Instead, the First Navy Jack, which features the rattlesnake on a background of red and white stripes, has been used by the Navy since it was formed.
The flag has appeared in popular culture a number of times. The American men's national soccer team features the rattlesnake on the inside of their uniforms, and Nike has used the snake and the Don't Tread On Me slogan in their campaign supporting the team. It has appeared in the novel Stranger in a Strange Land, the movie The Patriot, and the television show Jericho.
This patch is a bit different from the flag: the snake is done in green on a black background instead of a black snake on a yellow background.

The best part about print on demand and dropshippingIt took me a while to make the decision to drop ship my products. Dropshipping helps to reduce the carbon footprint. I do not manufacture or stock any of the products on my website. So this means that I am helping to save our environment just a little bit each day. The products ship to you direct from manufactures and product warehouses. Most items ship fast and you will see them soon. It also reduces the gas used in the actual transport of the product. When you order a product from my website, the request goes direct to the warehouse, a great group of people gather, package and ship the item you want direct to your door. Print on Demand is exactly that. When you order a shirt, the print company pulls the shirt, places the design and ships direct to you. Being a small business owner, I do not have to keep tons of stock in my back room nor do I have to put out a ton of money for product to sit on a shelf and wait to be purchased. It's the best of both worlds.
HELP STOP HOLIDAY SHIPPING NIGHTMARES
Please order your products as early as possible this year. Most leather goods will ship quickly, but once it's in the hands of the carrier, I have no control over when it will arrive.
Most Shirts and Hoodies, should be ordered before December 5th to get them on time to go under the tree. Again, once it ships from the manufacturer, I have no control over how fast or slow it goes.
This year, shipping is determined by the Post Office & UPS. I'm sure those men and women are working extremely hard to get you the products as quickly as possible. I would like to encourage your patience with them as we all work through this dynamic time together.
Thank you for understanding.
