The Gadsden flag has long been a symbol of America's opposition to tyranny. Use of the rattlesnake symbolism originated with Benjamin Franklin's famous "Join, or Die" political cartoon in 1754. Franklin later explained why he chose the rattlesnake to symbolize the American spirit:
"She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. ... she never wounds till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of stepping on her.—Was I wrong, Sir, in thinking this a strong picture of the temper and conduct of America?"
Those who still believe in the liberties our Founding Fathers fought and died for continue to use this symbol today. Now combined with the Stars and Stripes, use this sticker to declare your patriotism and your love for freedom. Don't Tread on This!

Our bumper stickers are made from the finest synthetic (polypropylene or polyester — similar to vinyl, but thinner and stronger) materials. We use automotive-grade color pigments that are heat-fused onto the material, so the image is resistant to weather, car washes, etc. Our bumper stickers are flexible and easy to apply. Most stickers will last a year or two under normal weather conditions.
