The first flag to represent any dissension amongst the Colonies, this flag was raised in the town of Taunton, Massachusetts, as a symbol of the colonies frustration and unwillingness to be persecuted. The flag was the first in a series that would warn the British that the Colonies were a force to be reckoned with, and would not accept any loss of their rights or freedom.
The bold words “Liberty and Union” reflect the original sentiment of the Colonists, which was to be treated as equal citizens of the British Empire, (“No taxation with representation!”) rather then be excluded from it.
