Uterus Gadsen Flag
The original flag, named after American general and politician Christopher Gadsden (1724–1805), was designed in 1775 during the American Revolution. Adopted in 1778, the flag has a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. Positioned below the rattlesnake are the words “DONT TREAD ON ME”.
