An early Colonial “Protest” Flag, Liberty Flags were flown in Town, Village and City Centers on “Liberty Poles”. First seen in 1771 in New York, they were designed as a protest to the many British taxes being imposed upon The Colonies. The Flags (small at 3x3 feet), were Blue in Field with the White wording “LIBERTY” sewn in the center.
