SONS OF LIBERTY FLAG HISTORY
The Sons of Liberty were founded in 1765 after the British rulers passed the Stamp Act upon the American colonies. Basically, the Stamp Act was designed to levy heavy taxes on the American colonists, despite having no legal or delegate representation in the British Parliament. From the following history, you can guess how well that went.
"No taxation without representation!" was a common phrase heard among the early American revolutionaries and rebellious groups like the Sons of Liberty. The Sons of Liberty became a hotbed for the most revolutionary spirits among the patriot groups. Men who later became instrumental in early America worked with the group. Such members included: Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere, Christopher Gadsden, Hercules Mulligan, and Patrick Henry.
The Sons of Liberty flag was also known as the "rebellious stripes flag" and was adopted as the group logo in 1767. It flew from the famous "Liberty Pole" in Boston after the British cut down a tree (the Liberty Tree) that served as the Sons of Liberty's main meeting place.
The Sons of Liberty flag was adopted and changed slightly by many other revolutionary groups. The American colonies' navy flew a slightly changed version throughout the war. The first-ever unified colonies' flag included the 13 red and white stripes, and flags like the First Navy Jack flag also honored this flag.
Though the original version of the Sons of Liberty flag included only 9 red and white stripes, later versions included the 13 stripes. Those, of course, ended up as the basis for the American flag we know and love today.
