Colección: JUST STEP

The Gadsden Flag was created by Christopher Gadsden in Charleston, SC 1775.  The flag represented the US colonies' attitudes towards the British infringing on their freedoms, symbolized by a coiled rattlesnake ready to strike with the words 'DON'T TREAD ON ME' underneath.  During this same period, the American Slave Trade was going full throttle, with Charleston being the location a projected 80% of African slaves would enter America.  The Gadsden Flag has also been used for military purposes, gun-rights activists and far-right ideological groups.  

Since then, the descendants of the Diaspora have been establishing their own identity in the U.S.  after having their own stripped from them.  It seems the call to not have one's rights infringed was misplaced with the previous Gadsden flag.  We took the liberty to remix the flag for those who have truly been infringed upon.  We are not the snake in the grass ready to strike if stepped on, but we are standing tall, demanding you come correct or not at all.
