South Carolina Sovereignty Flag

Just after the South Carolina Secession Convention voted to secede from the Union in December of 1860 the South Carolina Sovereignty Flag was raised and became the unofficial state flag until January 26th, 1861 when the official state flag was adopted. The design consisted of a red background with a blue Saint George’s Cross and 15 white stars representing the 15 states that were south of the Mason-Dixon line. A palmetto and crescent appear in the top corner near the hoist side. The crescent was a throwback to the flag flown at Fort Moultrie during the battle of Sullivan’s island in 1776 when colonial forces defended it against the British Navy. The palmetto tree was added to the crescent design also as a representation of the palmetto logs laid against the walls of the fortress. The palmetto logs were successful in repelling British cannonballs during the bombardment. The South Carolina Sovereignty flag was also the inspiration for the Confederate battle flag which was designed by William Porcher Miles at the behest of General P.G.T. Beauregard.

Printed polyester is a very lightweight material that will fly nicely in the slightest breeze.
