The same wording is also printed on the back on black fabric and in between the two there is a tag that reads "Geo. Lauterer Co.-- Badges, Banners, Flags, Buttons, Society Regalia and Supplies. 9 N. Franklin St." Tripolitans established an organization which they called "Theodoros Kolokotronis." It has enabled the Tripolitans to associate with one another and do many things for their country.
