Double or Single Sided . Parrot Head – Key West – Jimmy Buffet – Ernest Hemingway – Joe Forte.

This is a double-sided nylon flag (two flags sewn together so the image is the same on both sides).

Key West seceded from the Union in 1982. It’s true… well, sort of. In early spring of that year, the US Border Patrol erected a blockade on US Highway 1 at Florida City in an effort to keep out illegal immigrants. This did not go over well with the citizens of the islands

On April 23rd of 1982 then-mayor Dennis Wardlow read a proclamation of secession, broke a loaf of stale Cuban bread over the head of a ‘US Navy’ sailor, and then surrendered to the US Admiral in charge of the Key West naval base and demanded $1 billion in foreign aid to rebuild the Republic!

The United States Government, in an act typically short-sighted, failed to acknowledge the secession, but the Republic lives on.

Key West Motto: We Seceded Where Others Failed
