The Conch Republic is a micronation declared as a tongue-in-cheek protest secession of the city of Key West from the United States on April 23, 1982. Although the Conch Republic is not, and never was, a real secessionist movement, many in Key West continue to identify with the concerns that motivated the original protest. The flag depicts a sun set in a blue field with a conch in the center. Made from economy polyester. Made in China. Measures 3 ft. x 5 ft. This single reverse flag is dyed and finished with strong canvas headings and brass grommets.
