Flag of South Carolina

The flag's design consists of a white palmetto tree on an indigo field, with a white crescent in the upper left corner. The palmetto tree commemorates the defense of Sullivan's Island from British attack in 1776, while the crescent was a symbol worn by troops during the Revolutionary War. The blue field represents the uniforms of the South Carolina troops.
