Pine Tree Flag

The Tree Flag was one of the flags used during the American Revolution. The flag, featuring a pine tree with the motto "An Appeal to God" or, more "An Appeal to Heaven", was used by a squadron of six cruisers commissioned under George Washington's authority as commander in chief of the Continental Army in October 1775, it was used by Massachusetts state navy vessels in addition to privateers sailing from Massachusetts. The design of the flag came from Colonel Joseph Reed. In a letter dated October 20, 1775, Colonel Reed suggested a "flag with a white ground and a tree in the middle, the motto AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN" be used for the ships Washington commissioned; the following summer, on July 26, 1776, the Massachusetts General Court established the flag of the state navy with a resolution that stated in part: "...that the Colours be a white Flag, with a green Pine Tree, an Inscription,'Appeal to Heaven'." The pine tree had long been a New England symbol being depicted on the Flag of New England flown by colonial merchant ships dating back to 1686.

The pine tree appeared earlier on coinage produced by the Massachusetts Bay colony from 1652 to 1682, a period of relative independence for New England during the English Commonwealth. Leading up to the Revolutionary War the pine tree became a symbol of Colonial ire and resistance as well as multi-tribal support of Independence; the white pine found in New England the eastern white pine with heights exceeding 150 feet, was desirable for constructing masts in shipbuilding. Twenty years after arrival in the new world, the Pilgrims harvested and exported these pines as far as Madagascar. Due to lack of supply of suitable lumber on the island, England reserved 24 inch diameter trees under the Mast Preservation Clause in the Massachusetts Charter in 1691; the trees were identified by a Surveyor of the King’s Woods who would, in turn, appoint deputies to survey and place the broad arrow symbol on the tree from three hatchet slashings denoting property of the Crown. The broad arrow statutes were not enforced, due to England having access to other sources of timber in the Baltic.

However, when this source diminished, additional broad arrow policies acts were passed and enforcement increased in North America. The statutes required colonists prior to harvesting trees from their property to have a King's Surveyor mark the larger diameter trees with the broad arrow and purchase a royal license to harvest the trees not marked with the broad arrow; the colonists resented the strictures on the timber used for their livelihoods. Prohibitions were disregarded and they practiced "Swamp Law", where the pines were harvested according to their needs regardless of statutes. In New Hampshire enforcement led to the Pine Tree Riot in 1772, where a statute had been in effect since 1722 protecting 12-inch diameter trees. After being fined and refusing to pay for possessing trees marked with the broad arrow, a New Hampshire mill owner leading other mill owners and townsmen assaulted the Sheriff and his Deputy sent to arrest him by giving him one lash with a tree switch for every tree which the mill owners were fined, cutting the ears and tails off their horses, forced them out of town through a jeering crowd.

This was one of the first acts of forceful protest against British policies. It occurred two years prior to the more well-known Boston Tea Party protest and three years before open hostilities began at the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Months prior to Colonel Reed's suggestion for using the pine, the pine was used on the flag that the Colonists flew at the Battle of Bunker Hill in June 1775; the accepted flag has a red field with the green pine tree in the upper left corner as depicted in John Trumbull's The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker's Hill, June 17, 1775 painting. Provided Colonel Reed was aware of the Bunker Hill flag, there was a precedent to incorporate the pine in another Colonial martial flag. Given the pine tree's significance to the Colonists and since the flag was to fly over Colonial warships, the pine offered an appropriate and ironic symbol due to it flying atop the structure the British had sought to harvest the white pine for. Well into the 20th century, the pine tree was a symbol of New England.

The state of Maine adopted the 1901 Maine Flag which prominently featured a pine tree alongside a blue star. The phrase is a particular expression of the right of revolution used by British philosopher John Locke in Second Treatise on Civil Government, published in 1690 as part of Two Treatises of Government refuting the theory of the divine right of kings. Locke's works were well-known and quoted by colonial leaders, being the most quoted authority on the government in the 1760-1776 period prior to American independence. Thomas Jefferson was accused of plagiarizing Locke in certain sections of the Declaration of Independence by fellow Virginian delegate Richard Henry Lee. Prior to Colonel Reed's suggestion and Massachusetts General Court establishing the Pine Tree flag as the standard of the Massachusetts navy, "an appeal to Heaven" or similar expressions had been invoked by the Massachusetts Provincial Congress in several resolutions, Patrick Henry in his Liberty or Death speech, the Second Continental Congress in the Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms.

Subsequently, it was used again by the Second Continental Congress in the Declaration of Independence. The Pine Tree flag is shown in the opening credits of all seven episodes of the 2008 HBO miniseries John Adams and is shown being carried by colonial forces in "Part I: Join

In the Prime Minister's Office, of Imre Pozsgay he worked as a government chief counsellor on a Ministers of State secretariat in 1989, he was the spokesman of the Hungarian Young Communist League central committee in the same year. He met Ferenc Gyurcsány. Between 1989 and 1990 he was on the supervisory board of Magyar Televízió and Magyar Rádió, held a position as under-secretary in Prime Minister's Office. Between 1998 and 2000 he was the CEO of Altus corp. the company owned by his close friend Ferenc Gyurcsány. Soon after Gyurcsány became Prime Minister he appointed Szilvásy as his minister of chancellery. Between 2006 and 2007 Szilvásy was leading Cabinet Minister of the office of the Prime Minister.

After the June 2007 he became minister supervising the secret service. He lost that position, he was arrested in July 2011. News channel Hír TV reported on 1 July evening that a house search had been carried out at the home of Szilvásy. According to Hír TV, the house search was connected to a statement by Lajos Galambos, former chief director of the National Security Office, under house arrest on espionage charges; the main opposition Socialist Party stands up for György Szilvásy, believes that he is innocent and expresses solidarity with the former minister in charge of the secret services during the Gyurcsány government, Socialist leader Attila Mesterházy said on 2 July. Ferenc Gyurcsány said on Facebook earlier on that day that he had been informed by Szilvásy’s family that the former minister is suspected of criminal activities against the state. On 5 July 2013, a court in Debrecen sentenced in a non-final ruling Szilvásy and Galambos to two years and ten months in prison for espionage; the trial was held in full secrecy and the files of the case have been classified until 2040 because, as the prosecution put it, “several state secrets have emerged during the lawsuit”.

Szilvásy told MTI. The opposition Socialists said; as long as the files of the case are classified, the Socialist consider the lawsuit against Szilvásy to be based on trumped-up charges, Socialist leader Mesterházy said. Ex-premier Ferenc Gyurcsány, leader of the leftist Democratic Coalition, expressed solidarity with his former minister. Gyurcsány called it characteristic of the “absurd world of the Orbán government” that, for the first time since the 1950s, a former minister has been sentenced to a term in prison; the opposition E14-PM electoral alliance called for the files of the case to be made public. Commenting the sentence, a Fidesz spokesman said that “a key figure of the mafia left wing could be put behind bars”. Máté Kocsis called Szilvásy a close associate of Gyurcsány, ex-premier Gordon Bajnai and Mesterhazy, whom he co-blamed for “destroying the country both economically and morally”, it is therefore no surprise that they have expressed solidarity with him, he said. Szilvásy is married, with two children.

One of his brothers, Péter Szilvásy called attention to himself with operating the so-called Kormányzati Tanácsadó Jósda in 2007. His other brother, István Szilvásy is heading the national medical centre from 2007
