This was the flag of the early colonists who joined together in the protest against the British impositions on American economic freedom. One such protest was resistance to the Stamp Act, on October 7, 1765. A delegate from each of the nine colonies formed the "Stamp Act Congress" who petitioned the king and parliament, repealing the act on March 18, 1766. The flag of nine red and white stripes that represented these "Sons of Liberty" became known as the "Rebellious Stripes."

On December 16, 1773, the Sons of Liberty protested the parliament's Tea Act, an action that became known as the Boston Tea Party. The colonists believed the tax to be a violation of their legitimate economic liberty. Three and a half years after the Tea Party, the thirteen colonies came together in their decision to fight for independence and the nine stripes grew to thirteen. The Sons of Liberty would rally under a large tree which became known as "The Liberty Tree".
