South Carolina State Flag - Beadwork Pattern

Updated on December 2, 2012

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.

This peyote beading stitch pattern is based on the South Carolina state flag. You can make a beaded pin out of it or incorporate the motif into pretty much any beading project you want.

The flag of South Carolina is believed to have been originally designed in 1775 for use by South Carolinian troops during the American Revolutionary War. The blue of the flag was borrowed from the militia's uniforms and the crescent from the emblem on their caps. However, elements that compose the current flag were seen in as far back as 1765, in a banner used by South Carolina protesters of the Stamp Act. South Carolina's flag was ranked as being the 10th best designed state or provincial flag...
