The pine tree had long been used as a symbol of New England before it came to represent Colonial resistance leading up to the Revolutionary War. When General George Washington commissioned a flag for his six Contintal Cruiser ships, his secretary, Colonel Joseph Reed, suggested a pine tree with a popular right-to-revolution phrase from British philosopher John Locke - “An Appeal to Heaven”.
