The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag named after American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden, who designed it in 1775 during the American revolution. On a field of yellow, a rattlesnake is coiled on a patch of green. The rattlesnake was used in early American history as a symbol of resistance against British rule.  This flag was used also in 1776, when Hopkins was attacking and capturing British armaments in the Bahamas). This was the beginning of the sea-going American navy and the start of the Corps of Marines. The Marines of the Continental Navy also painted the “Dont Tread on Me” design on their battle drums.
