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.

PLEASE NOTE: Important FYI facts to buying that right jacket, vest or chap

 Leather traditionally runs a size small!

  • Putting vest over jacket? – look at how much padding your jacket has - do not go by its size
  • Ladies leather can run two sizes smaller – measure your chest size!
  • Chaps fit by thigh size - Length can be cut as needed

Read below for further information that help explain best fit for different body types:

Some very important tips!

Ask yourself these following questions :

  • Are you going to put your vest over your jacket?
  • Do you like to put patches on your vest or jacket?
  • Do you like collars or leather to touch your neck?
  • Do you ride long distance? or night ride?
  • Do you want a clean look or are pockets, etc ok?
  • Do you like to wear heavy tops when you ride?
  • Do you like black or brown leather?  Braid or fringe?
  • How much do you want to spend?
  • How much do you value your skin? (High quality protection and platinum leathers or gear can be costly, but always worth it!!!)
  • Do you need tall sizes? (very hard to fit long arms - we have suggestions)
  • Ladies, do you like your lower back exposed when you lean forward?
    If you said no - than look for longer jackets.
  • Do you care for your leather at the end of seasons? (Find your local dry cleaner who specializes in leather conditioning)
  • When choosing a Helmet - we only suggest DOT helmets
    (customers who choose non-DOT take responsibility for themselves)

    Full Face - never had one? Look at a modular first - less claustrophobic.
    3/4 - a lighter style similar to Full Face without chin protection
    Shorty's - the most popular (ps - if it says the thinnest DOT - steer away 
    **Measure your actual hat size this will help to find the correct fit.

All the above will help to steer you to the right fit and leather for you!
