The historical Washington's Cruisers flag is made up of a white field with a green pine tree and the slogan "An Appeal to Heaven." The flag is thought to have been derived around 1775 when Col. Joseph Reed (Washington's Secretary) wrote of the need for a recognizable symbol that could be flown from the ships patrolling the Charles River so the vessels would know one another. The flag later became the Massachusetts Naval flag in 1776.
