First Navy Flag = Liberty Tree "Appeal To Heaven" Flag: Point Paper on Why Yes to Liberty Tree Navy Flag, Why NO to Snake flag
True Tree of Liberty First Navy Flag
Fake Snake Navy Jack Flag
While well-meaning and begun by staff officers who did not know the Truth of early American history, the United States Navy is currently perpetuating an historical hoax, or a fraud, by the erroneous instruction that American Navy ships are to fly what is rightly called the "Fake Snake" Navy Jack Flag, that flag scholar Peter Ansoff has carefully researched and concludes never flew on an American Continental Navy ship.
On the other hand, in the hand writing, or penmanship, of Colonel Joseph Reed, the aide to General George Washington, Commander-in-Chief of all American Forces, Navy and Army, we have a description of the true First Navy Flag, that is rightly called the evergreen Tree of Liberty Flag, and is also known at the Washington Cruisers Flag, that first flew on or about 2 September in the Year of Our Lord 1775.
