Official South Carolina State Flag – Sewn and Embroidered 2-Ply Polyester
The flag design consists of a blue background with a white palmetto and crescent. 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 uniforms of the fort’s defenders included a crescent badge on the cap, while the uniform was blue. 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. While the South Carolina state flag design has evolved several times over the last couple of centuries, the palmetto and crescent have always been present as a constant reminder of the Palmetto State’s brave history. The State’s legislature has never officially adopted an official flag design specifying the exact size and shape of the Palmetto and Crescent or the background color, so there is no “official” version of the flag and the design elements will vary slightly from one manufacturer to the next.
2-ply polyester is the most durable option for those who fly their flag 24/7 in areas with higher wind speeds. This flag features beautifully sewn and embroidered artwork against a blue background. The artwork is visible on both sides of the flag.
