3' X 5' Washington's Cruisers' Flag - Nylon

This Pine Tree banner was flown by the American Navy at its birth. As the first American War vessels, a pair of floating batteries, were deployed against the British in Boston Bay, this was the flag they raised. The Pine Tree had become a strong yet simple symbol of New England and the Colonies, and was well likely by Colonials, including General Washington. The words "An Appeal to Heaven," are in reference to a resolution by the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts, which states, "Appealing to Heaven for the justice of our cause, we determine to die or be free."
