Navy To Wear “Don’t Tread On Me” Unis When They Take On Army Here In Baltimore.

Sports and Bets — December 9, 2014 at 10:05 pm by

Those crazy uniform folks at Under Armour are at it again.  Navy will wear, “Don’t Tread On Me,” uniforms for their annual clash with Army this Saturday at the Big Crabcake.  The uniforms are designed after the incredibly bad-ass, “Don’t Tread On Me,” flag, otherwise known as the Gadsden Flag.  Christopher Gadsden designed the flag during the Revolutionary War.  The rattlesnake was a prominent symbol of the American Revolution, first used by Benjamin Franklin as a representation of the colonies in his famous, “Join, Or Die” cartoon.  As the idea of Revolution spread throughout the colonies, the rattlesnake appeared more and more on newspapers, pamphlets, and flags as a symbol of liberty and royal defiance.

The Continental Marines were the first to fly this beauty, hence the tie-in to the American naval tradition. No doubt, this is another home-run from our friends down in Locust Point.  History, toughness, and Navy pride all rolled into one great uniform.  This will be the 115th edition of the Army/Navy game.  Love the fact that it’s here in Baltimore again.  USA! USA! USA!
