 Adm. Vern Clark, Chief of Naval Operations: 
The first Navy jack will be flown on board all U.S. Navy ships in lieu of the Union Jack during the global war on terrorism. To honor those who died during the attack of 11 Sep. 01, all afloat commands will commence flying the first Navy jack at morning colors on 11 Sep. 02. The first Navy jack is a flag consisting of a rattlesnake, superimposed across 13 horizontal alternating red and white stripes with the motto 'don't tread on me.' The jack was first employed by commodore Esek Hopkins in the fall of 1775 as he readied the continental navy in the Delaware River. His signal for the whole fleet to engage the enemy was the striped jack and ensign flown at their proper places. The temporary substitution of this jack represents a historic reminder of the nation's and Navy's origin.
