florida man

This horrendous flag was once proposed for the official banner of the then territory of Florida hoisted in 1845—recreated according to a contemporary written account—with the appointment of its first governor, William Dunn Moseley, the citizens of Tallahassee flying it at the capitol during his inauguration ceremony. Whilst no one seemed to take objection to the busy and bizarre colour combination (here is the current municipal flag of Tampa), Whigs in the senate roundly rejected the adoption as the motto “Let us Alone” was pointedly a Democratic Party slogan.
