This camp flag—made in collaboration with Chrome Yellow Trading Co., featuring Atlanta-inspired designs by Office of Brothers—was inspired by a banner from the 1917 American suffragette movement. Lavinia Dock's words ring true to this day: the old selfish minds must go, and the youth must persevere.

 Size: 18" x 24"

Material: Cut-and-sewn wool felt, and printed design

Color: Gold

This design was inspired by a banner used in 1917 during the American suffragette movement. The original hangs at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument in Washington D.C. The message "THE YOUNG ARE AT THE GATES," is excerpted from suffragette Lavinia Dock's June 30th passage in The Suffragist newspaper. It was published a week before the first pickets protested in front of the White House to pressure President Woodrow Wilson to support the Amendment. They were arrested for their efforts.

“What is the potent spirit of youth? Is it not the spirit of revolt, of rebellion against senseless and useless and deadening things? Most of all, against injustice, which is of all stupid things the stupidest? …The old stiff minds must give way. The old selfish minds must go. Obstructive reactionaries must move on. The young are at the gates!”
