George Washington's Cruisers An Appeal to Heaven 28" x 40" Vertical Banner

This flag is reminiscent of the revolutionary war era "Washington's Cruisers" design but converted to a vertical orientation so that it may be displayed in the same fashion as a decorative or seasonal flag on the side of a building or post. The top of the flag is finished with a pole sleeve so that it may slide onto a wooden banner pole for outdoors or displayed indoors on a curtain rod or dowel as a decorative wall hanging. 

Two Group Dye Sublimated House Flags are printed on 2 ply blocker polyester fabric which allows both sides to be printed and read correctly from each side. It is an incredibly durable material that has the feel of suede with a slight amount of elasticity. Blocker fabric is more durable and fade resistant than most other printed polyester flags and the dye sublimation process produces beautiful color resolution and incredible detail. Fits any standard 5' pole. Flag size 28" x 40". 

History of the Washington's Cruisers Flag

In September 1775, the Massachusetts Navy launched two strong floating batteries on the Charles River, Massachusetts, and in October, they fired on the British in Boston. Also in October, Washington commissioned the schooners, Lynch and Franklin, to cruise the Bay. When referring to these schooners, Col. Joseph Reed, Washington's secretary, in a letter from Cambridge, Mass. to Colonels Glover and Moyland, dated October 20, 1775, gave the following instructions: "Please fix upon some particular color for a flag and a signal by which our vessels may know one another. What do you think of a flag with a white ground and a tree in the middle, the motto 'AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN' - this is the flag of our floating batteries." By February 1, 1776, a total of six such "armed Vessels" of the Navy of The United Colonies of North America, had been commissioned by George Washington. In April 1776, the Massachusetts council passed a series of regulations for the Navy, among which was the following: "Resolved, that the uniform of the officers be green and white and that the colors be a white flag, with a green pine tree, and the inscription, 'An Appeal to Heaven'." The flag was officially adopted by the Massachusetts Navy in April of 1776. Many revolutionary war symbols and flags have recently been revived to represent resistance to an ever-expanding and overreaching federal government.
