Gadsden Flag - Correction

I greatly appreciate correspondent CindyW for her gracious note telling my ignorance was showing.

She wrote to correct my side-bar claim that the Gadsden flag is, or can be, currently flown on U.S. Naval vessels. She correctly noted:
You’re correct that the Gadsden Flag was first flown during the American Revolution. However, it isn’t flown on US Navy ships. The First Naval Jack is flown on the oldest ship in the fleet (the Kitty Hawk). After 911, all ships were authorized to fly it.

Like the Gadsden, it’s a “rattlesnake” flag, but looks like this:

On the 4th of July, we fly this one and about a dozen other historical flags from our house. We’ve become avid collectors!
In our apartment situation, "they" don't like the waving of flags around here. I think they're afraid some one may wave one of these and "upset" the indigenous population. Whatever that is!

Oh well, maybe we can establish a stand of flags at our son's domicile after a while.

Whatever our future holds, a big hat tip to CindyW for straightening me out! ;>)

God Bless Ya'll !
