Sentiments of the U.S. Founding Fathers inspired the text on this flag, while the famous "Liberty Tree" found its way onto this Revolutionary War-era flag.
As depicted in Flags of the World, by McCandless and Grosvenor, published 1917.

The national Postal Authority of Antigua and Barbuda issued in 1976 a series of postage stamps celebrating the Bicentennial of the U.S. independence. (Stanley Gibbons #491; see our stamp #02031.) The 35 cent stamp shows two contemporary flags: the Gadsden flag and a variant of the Washington’s Cruisers flag, which shows black stripes at top and bottom and different writing: It says "Liberty tree" above the tree and "An appeal to God" below it, in comic-style capitals (on the stamp it is visible only "erty tree" and "ppeal to God").
