The Rustic Gadsden Charred Yellow, Wooden Gadsden Flag
Look no further If you're looking to display some American spirit in your home with this rustic "Don't Tread On Me" American flag wall art!
***For the yellow portion of the flag, I char the wood first then apply the yellow stain giving the flag a more rustic feel.
The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. Positioned below the rattlesnake are the words "DON'T TREAD ON ME." The flag is named after American general and politician Christopher Gadsden (1724–1805), who designed it in 1775 during the American Revolution.

The "Don't Tread On Me" portion is laser engraved ensuring crisp lines and awesome detail within the engraving. Each piece of wood is hand selected and meticulously prepared to ensure a truly wonderful and striking piece. The stripes are stained Red, White stripes on this flag are natural pine and the union is blue. The thirteen stripes are glued together with interior/exterior glue. To ensure longevity, the back of the flag has 1" x 3" wood strips glued and stapled to the back of the flag. The flag is then charred to perfection.
No need to worry about displaying the flag outdoors. Each flag is finished with four coats of indoor/outdoor clear gloss spar urethane. The flag is shipped ready to hang D-rings and 60 pound picture wire. Alternative finishes are available upon request.
**Please note that there may be variations in colors due to lighting as well as variations in the pieces of wood. The stripes may not be perfectly flush with each other.**
I purchased this flag a while ago and thought it was just ok. But over a period of time the more I looked at it the less I liked it. The biggest problem is the proportions of the flag. The field of stars is almost square. The other problem is the black line separating the two fields. Rather than a reasonably defined meandering line it is a thick indistinct line with a weak ess curve in it. Maybe it's because it's the 13x24 flag, I don't know. On the upside it is well constructed.
Exactly as it should be, beautifully crafted and well built. This is the 2nd one I’ve had made, will be ordering more for a couple family members.
My husband LOVED his flag! He's got more on his wish list so my holiday shopping should be a breeze for a while.
Just received our flag and it is beautiful. Thank you for the care that went into this flag.
Wish we could order another of these great pieces of art and patriotism. Thank you vets!
