South Carolina State Flag - Beadwork Pattern
Bead the South Carolina Flag!
In the autumn of 1775, the Revolutionary Council of Safety asked Col. William Moultrie to design a flag for the South Carolina troops. Colonel Moultrie selected a blue background to match the uniforms of the troops and a crescent to signify the silver emblem worn on the front of their caps. Later, the palmetto tree was added to honor Moultrie's heroic defense of the palmetto log fort against the British fleet, on Sullivan's Island, June 28, 1776.
