South Carolina State Flags

The South Carolina State flag magnificently commemorates the triumph and will of the “Palmetto State.” The South Carolina flag classically displays a palmetto, or palm tree, and a crescent moon.  The flag’s origins and popularity may be traced to 1775. Colonel William Moultrie designed the flag as his troops defended a newly erected fortress on S.C’s Sullivan Island.  Col. Moultrie created a flag with a crescent moon. During the 16 hour battle the flag was shot down.  Sgt. William Jasper ran into the open and raised the banner and rallied the troops. The heroic gesture is thought to have saved Charleston. Moultrie’s flag became a symbol of the revolution. The palmetto, the official S.C. state tree, was added in 1861 as they were thought to have helped the sand walls of the fort withstand the British cannons.
