The use of the snake in American History can be traced back to the great Benjamin Franklin and his famous "Join Or Die" publication in 1751.
"I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids—She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance.—She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage." ~ Benjamin Franklin
It is likely here, that the Gadsden Flag drew its inspiration for the "Don't Tread On Me" snake. Our DTOM Snake A Stencils are a unique variation of this powerful symbol.
Excellent product - couldn't be happier with the quality. These are used in my powder coating business on RTIC Tumblers and produce a sharp clear line, and are easy to lift off the tumblers once coated. You can see the finished product by visiting @vpwdr on FB
