DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) - A new bill in the Iowa Senate is looking to make the Gadsden Flag available on Iowa license plates.
Senate File 47 would give make the controversial design available as a vanity plate design for $35. It’s known for its bright yellow background with an image of a rattlesnake and the words, “Don’t Tread on Me.”
The flag, which has historic ties to libertarianism, has been used more recently as a symbol for far-right-leaning anti-establishment groups.
If passed, Iowa would be the 13th state to have the design as an option for license plates.
