The South Carolina State Flag
In 1775, Colonel William moultrie was asked by the Revolutionary Council of Safety to design a flag for the South Carolina troops. For the background he selected a medium blue which matched the color of their uniforms. He added a white crescent similar to the silver emblem on the front of their caps. The palmetto tree was added later to represent Moultrie's defense of the palmetto-log fort on Sullivan's Island against the British fleet on June 28, 1776.
