It’s getting pretty common in college sports for teams to create special uniforms for special occasions. Under Armour created these rebellious new helmets and uniforms for the U.S. Naval Academy to wear during the annual matchup with Army.
The design does look pretty tea party. That’s because it’s based on the First Navy Jack flag that also features a rattlesnake and the “Don’t tread on me” motto. While the tea party adopted Gadsden flag depicts a coiled snake on a gold background, the Navy Jack features a diagonal snake across a field of thirteen red and white stripes.
