As the Tea Party rallies have spread around the country this past year, theyve brought with them a profusion of flags far beyond the usual Stars and Stripes.
Theres been plenty of red, white, and blue
at Tea Party events, certainly -- but some of it is in different patterns than usual. Other flags are black and white; still others are bright yellow. There are letters and numbers and words in the
mix. Also rattlesnakes. Lots of rattlesnakes.
Here's a look at some of the various Tea Party flags.
