THE U.S. CIVIL FLAG AND THE SONS OF LIBERTY CONNECTION



Date: Friday, 7 May 2004, 1:46 a.m.

Originally I came across the U.S. Civil Flag as a result of an article by Barefoot Bob titled The U.S. Civil Flag of Peacetime. http://www.barefootsworld.net/uscivilflag.html
The first U.S. Civil Flag was designed in 1799, by Oliver Wolcott; the Secretary of the Treasury under John Adams. Wolcott's proposal featured an ensign of sixteen stripes, alternating red and white, representing the number of states that had joined the Union by 1799, with the Union to be the Arms of the United States in dark blue on a white field. It is significant that Wolcott turned the arrangement of the stripes ninety degrees to vertical to differentiate the new revenue cutter ensign from the U.S. Flag, to denote civilian authority under the Treasury Department, rather than military authority under the War Department.

Through usage and custom, horizontal stripes had become adopted for use over military posts, and vertical stripes adopted for use over civilian establishments. The Civil Flag, intended for peacetime usage in custom houses civilian settings, had vertical stripes with blue stars on a white field. By the Law of the Flag, this design denoted civil jurisdiction under the Constitution and common law as opposed to military jurisdiction under admiralty/military law.

Although intended just for Customs house usage, the new Civil Flag became adopted by both customhouses and merchants, and others who could afford them, to show their civilian nature and not under military control. The practice of using the Customs Flag as a Civil Flag became encoded in law in 1874 when Treasury Secretary William. A. Richardson required all customhouses to display the Civil Flag.

Where did Wolcott get the idea of using vertical stripes from? Enter the Sons of Liberty in Boston; the very first revolutionary group that sparked the initial rebellion with the Stamp act in 1765. The Stamp act was an act of the British Parliament to tax activities in their American colonies. The act was a tax on forms of legal documents including newspapers. The Stamp act created great unrest in American especially Boston, where an effigy of the Stamp agent Andrew Oliver was hanged and burned. Eventually Oliver resigned; his home was looted and the Stamps destroyed. The Elm tree Oliver was hung from eventually became known as the "Liberty Tree".

The Stamp act Congress invited all thirteen colonies and nine showed up. A petition of rights and grievances was drawn up declaring that the colonists "were entitled to all the inherent rights and liberties of his natural born subjects." The colonies also declared that "no taxes ever have been, or can be constitutionally imposed upon them, but by their respective legislatures" and that is was unreasonable and inconsistent, for the people of Great-Britain to grant to His Majesty the property of the colonists." The petition asserted that the extension of the courts of ADMIRALTY to prosecute the Act undermined "the rights and liberties" of the colonists. So the constitutional flag was raised.

The "rebellious stripes" flag with 9 red and white vertical stripes! The first and only constitutional flag!!! The "rebellious stripes" flag is 9 red and white non-uniform vertical stripes; anti-Starbuckian symbol . The only picture in circulation is found from a 1936 National Geographic article. The picture only shows a partial image of the flag; it is unknown if there is any insignia in the top left-hand corner.

The next major event in the prelude to the Revolutionary war was the Boston Tea Party. In 1768, custom officials seized John Hancock’s sloop ‘Liberty’ and he was charged with smuggling, eventually the charges were dropped. Hancock organized a boycott of tea from China sold by the British East India Company, but carried on regular British merchant ships. By 1773, the Company had high debts, huge stocks of tea and no prospect of selling it because smugglers such as Hancock were importing tea without paying duty. The British Government responded by passing the Tea Act, allowing the East India Company to sell tea to the colonies without the usual colonial tax undercutting the prices of the colonial merchants and smugglers.

On December 16, 1773, the night before a shipment was due to be landed in Boston, the Sons of Liberty a group of local residents organized by Samuel Adams, flew from the South Meeting House and headed towards the Dartmouth, the Eleanor and the Beaver all dressed as Mohawks. They boarded the ships and smashed 342 crates of tea in all three ships and dumped them into Boston Harbor.
Why is this event so pertinent and ironic? While the Sons of Liberty were flying the flag with 9 red and white vertical stripes, the flag of the common law, the British East India Company whose cargo was dumped into Boston Harbor was flying a flag with 13 horizontal red and white uniform stripes and the Union Jack. They were flying the EXACT same flag as the first official flag of the UNITED STATES, the "Grand Union Flag"! Lieutenant Paul Jones of the Congress Navy first flew the Grand Union flag on December 3rd 1775. General Washington on January 1st 1776 at Cambridge, Massachusetts hoisted itTHE CORPORATE FLAG OF THE JESUIT-CONTROLLED BRITISH EAST INDIA REPRESENTING THE ADMIRALTY LAW. THE LAW OF PIRATES!
Why did they change the root symbol of a newly independent country? Why did they reconnect the symbol of the new American nation back to the British Empire and more ominously to the Roman Catholic Empire? Linking the symbol back to the original magical creation of John Dee the great magician and court astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I, and the mentor of Sir Francis Bacon aka William Shakespeare.
