The United States Flag Store prides itself on carrying a full range of flags for virtually every want or need. And that includes specialty and/or hard-to-find flags, like First Navy Jack flags. Anyone who is serving or has served in the U.S. Navy will instantly recognize this flag as a reminder of the Navy's origins, as well as the military branch's will to persevere. And the United States Flag Store carries a ton of options for this particular flag, from small lapels and stick flags to huge banners and everything in between. What's more, our outdoor flags are made from durable polyester and nylon materials, so you can be sure you're getting a high quality product.
This flag is believed to have flown aboard the Continental Fleet's flagship Alfred, in January, 1776. Commodore Esek Hopkins raised this flag to signal his fleet to attack the enemy.
Currently, the Secretary of the Navy, Gordon R. England, has ordered all U.S. Navy ships to fly the First Navy Jack in place of the Union Jack for the duration of the Global War on Terrorism. In a memo to all ships and stations, England explained:
"The temporary substitution of this Jack represents a historic reminder of the nation's and Navy's origin and will to persevere and triumph."
It replaces the traditional US naval jack which is dark blue with 50 white stars, arranged as in the national flag.
We stock 3ft x 5ft sizes in nylon and polyester for most of the services. This flag is only available in 3ft x 5ft size and 4x6 inch. Also known as the "Don't tread on me flag".
