State of South Carolina Flag – Outdoor – Commercial
This is an American made flag of our toughest, most durable nylon fabric. It has solid brass grommets. You won’t find a nylon flag with higher tensile and tear strength, yet it flies very well in the wind. It has excellent strength retention under UV exposure, and high resistance to UV fading. The colors are deeper, brighter and last over time, due to the aniline dyeing process.
There is a one inch double edge fold with four rows of stitching on the fly edge. It has reinforced stitching vertically and horizontally at the fly corners.
On 26 January 1861, the South Carolina legislature adopted a palmetto flag, blue with a crescent in the canton (upper left) and a white oval in the center bearing a gold palmetto tree. Two days later another resolution changed it to the present design. The colors and symbols go back to America’s Revolutionary War. When Colonel Moultrie took possession of Fort Sullivan, South Carolina, he needed a flag. His troops’ were uniformed in blue, and they had silver crescents on their caps. He had a blue flag sewn, with a crescent in the upper corner, and the word Liberty. In Moultrie’s words, “This was the first American flag displayed in the South.” The Palmetto also comes from Fort Sullivan, which had been fortified with palmetto logs. When the British attacked the fort, the cannonballs bounced off without exploding. (A longer history of this flag is sent with each order.)
