About The Washington Cruisers Historical Flag

This Pine tree banner was flown by the American Navy at its birth. This was the flag they raised as the first American War vessels were deployed against the British in Boston Bay. The Pine Tree had become a strong yet simple symbol of New England and the Colonies, and was well liked by Colonials, including General Washington. The words “An Appeal to Heaven” are in reference to a resolution by the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts, which states “Appealing to Heaven for the justice of our cause, we determine to die or be free.”

More Info On The Appeal to Heaven Flag Design

The Appeal to Heaven Flag, also known as the Pine Tree Flag, has its origins in the early days of the American Revolution. Designed by Colonel Joseph Reed, it was adopted by the Massachusetts Navy in 1775. The phrase "An Appeal to Heaven" comes from the writings of philosopher John Locke, who argued that when all lawful avenues of redress are exhausted, people have the right to appeal to a higher authority—God. This flag was used on naval vessels authorized by George Washington to capture British supply ships, emphasizing the colonies' desperate fight for freedom and self-determination.

Today, the Appeal to Heaven Flag is a symbol of resistance to tyranny and the quest for liberty, embodying the spirit of the American Revolution and the enduring belief in a higher justice.
