The symbolism in the flag partnered by the image holds deep meaning. Basically, the “Don’t Tread on Me” phrase combined with the snake ready to strike is a warning. This tells people not to step on or take advantage of the Americans or they will strike. Unfortunately, it appears that different groups and individuals throughout the country, interpret the symbol to mean a whole lot of other things besides its original intent.

The kraken (/ˈkrɑːkən/) The kraken is a legendary cephalopod-like sea monster in Scandinavian folklore of giant size. According to the Norse sagas, the kraken dwells off the coasts of Norway and Greenland and terrorizes nearby sailors.
Since the late 18th century, kraken have been depicted in a number of ways, primarily as large octopus-like creatures, and it has often been alleged that Pontoppidan's kraken might have been based on sailors' observations of the giant squid. The kraken is also depicted to have spikes on its suckers. In the earliest descriptions, however, the creatures were more crab-like than octopus-like, and generally possessed traits that are associated with large whales rather than with giant squid. Some traits of kraken resemble undersea volcanic activity occurring in the Iceland region, including bubbles of water; sudden, dangerous currents; and appearance of new islets
Andrew Jackson was the 7th President of the United States, a General, a celebrated war hero, and one of the founders of the Democratic Party. He is one of the most influential and controversial figures in American history, and a lot of the famous stories surrounding Jackson talk about his aggressive temperament, toughness, and his principles.
It was this combination of personality traits that got Andrew Jackson in personal altercations with people, and in more extreme circumstances these altercations could lead to duels. Jackson wasn't a marksman, and he didn't seek to duel people unless he felt he had a personal reason to. Nevertheless throughout his life he participated in many duels.
Before ever becoming president, Jackson fought 103 duels–mostly defending the integrity of his wife. As a result, Jackson is said to have kept 37 pistols ready to be used in a duel at all times. Such was the occasion on the bank of the Red River in May of 1806.May 27, 2012

The Grumman F6F Hellcat An American carrier-based fighter aircraft of World War II. Designed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat and to counter the Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero, it was the United States Navy's dominant fighter in the second half of the Pacific War. The Hellcat competed with the faster Vought F4U Corsair for that role and prevailed, as the Corsair had significant issues with carrier landings. The Corsair, instead, was primarily deployed to great effect in land-based use by the U.S. Marine Corps. Powered by a 2,000 hp (1,500 kW) Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp, the same powerplant used for both the Corsair and the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) Republic P-47 Thunderboltfighters, the F6F was an entirely new design, but it still resembled the Wildcat in many ways. Some military observers tagged the Hellcat as the "Wildcat's big brother". The F6F made its combat debut in September 1943, and was best known for its role as a rugged, well-designed carrier fighter, which was able to outperform the A6M Zero and help secure air superiority over the Pacific theater. A total of 12,275 was built in just over 2 years. Hellcats were credited with destroying a total of 5,223 enemy aircraft while in service with the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm.[Note 2] This was more than any other Allied naval aircraft. After the war, the Hellcat was phased out of frontline service, but remained in service as late as 1954 as a night fighter.

What forever sealed the association of the ace of spades as the "death card," however, occurred during the Vietnam War. According to the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC), a pair of American lieutenants serving overseas wrote the company in February 1966 and asked USPCC to send them entire decks consisting of the ace of spades. The Viet Cong allegedly feared this card because of the superstitions surrounding it as a harbinger of death. In addition, the Bicycle brand uses Lady Liberty within its ace of spades symbol, which the enemy reportedly considered the "goddess of death."
The USPCC shipped thousands of these specialty decks overseas, where American troops used them as a form of psychological warfare against enemy forces in Vietnam. (The packaging of each deck was even labeled "Bicycle Secret Weapon.") Scattering these death cards in real or suspected hostile areas reportedly caused the Viet Cong to flee. In addition, some American troops would leave a single ace of spades card on the body of an enemy kill to indicate "We were here" or "We're coming for you."
