The “Appeal to Heaven” flag is one of Americas earliest flags and has begun to see a resurgence as Americans from all walks of life begin to turn back to the teachings of our founding.
The Appeal to Heaven flag was used originally by a squadron of six cruisers commissioned under George Washington’s authority as commander in chief of the Continental Army in October 1775. It was also used by Massachusetts’ state navy vessels in addition to privateers sailing from Massachusetts.
The term “Appeal to Heaven” comes from a passage in John Locke’s Second Treatsie on Civil Government which states:
“…where there lies no appeal on earth, viz. to judge, whether they have just cause to make their appeal to heaven. And this judgment they cannot part with, it being out of a man’s power so to submit himself to another, as to give him a liberty to destroy him; God and nature never allowing a man so to abandon himself, as to neglect his own preservation: and since he cannot take away his own life, neither can he give another power to take it.”
Each flag is handmade for you after purchase. This includes a multi step, proprietary vintaging process which uses Sweet Tea Junkie Handcrafted Black Tea to subtlety stain the individual planks.
