The flag of South Carolina has existed in some form since 1775, being based on one of the first Revolutionary War flags. Adopted on January 26, 1861 (modifications made on January 28, 1861). The flag invariably includes a white palmetto and crescent design on a blue background, state law does not provide "specifications for the shape, size, design or placement" of the symbols, or the exact color of the background. As a result, flags from different manufacturers may have different appearances. A committee of the South Carolina Senate held a hearing on the issue in January 2018, but did not immediately advance a bill to standardize the design.
Col. Moultrie’s chose blue to be the color of the flag so that it would match the color of his soldiers’ uniforms.
The crescent, with the word “liberty” written across it, also paid homage to their uniforms: their caps were adorned with silver crescents, along with the words “Liberty or Death.” (Or was it a gorget?) Does this all look familiar? It should. After the war ended, state leaders used this flag as a basis for the design of the official state flag in 1861. The word ‘liberty’ was taken out, and, of course, the palmetto tree was added.
