An Appeal to Heaven - Roundel Collection

roundel
noun | roun•del | /`roundl/
1. a small disk, especially a decorative medallion.
• a circular identifying mark painted on military aircraft.

Roundels are used on military aircraft as a type of national insignia that takes elements from the national flag. Here, we re-imagined the "Appeal to Heaven" flag in roundel form.
Used during the American Revolution, the "Appeal to Heaven" flag was originally used by a squadron of cruisers commissioned under George Washington. It was also used by Massachusetts' state navy vessels.

The phrase connotes after a long continuance of unjust abuses of power by a government have been patiently suffered and all means of redress by earthly authority are ineffectual and exhausted, a People are left no alternative than to appeal to a morally just Supreme Judge for final adjudication and hopeful vindication of their cause through forcible resistance to achieve redress either through the acquiescence, alteration, or abolishment of the offending government.
