The Pine Tree flag has become a lasting image of American history through its various iterations. This simple pine tree design is actually one of the first - not originally a flag of the American Revolution, but one used since the 1600s to represent the British Colonies, especially Massachusetts. The pine tree itself became a symbol of British colonial tyranny, and so too did this flag. Commemorate early America with this American-made historical flag.

PINE TREE FLAG HISTORY
The original Pine Tree flag was in use since the 1600s, and later became a symbol of America as it evolved over time. The New England white pine tree was under attack from the British colonial rulers - with Great Britain deforested, the lush American wilderness was logged heavily in the mid-1700s. This became yet another in a long list of grievances levied against the colonial rulers by the proto-American revolutionaries.
In New Hampshire, in defiance of British laws restricting the possession of certain types of pine trees, American farmers forced British law enforcement out of their town. This was one of the first acts of forceful protest by American colonists against the British and occurred 2 years before the famous Boston Tea Party. Following that, the pine tree was picked up as a symbol of the American Patriot group Sons of Liberty, and developed over time as a symbol of George Washington’s Continental Army.
The pine tree remains a major symbol of New England, and is still included on Maine’s state flag, still recognizable to the original pine tree flag.
