The South Carolina flag is set on a dark blue flag. It features a white palmetto tree. This symbolism of this tree is seen in the fact that this type of wood was used to construct Fort Moultrie. This soft type of wood was good for standing up to the canon assault from the British. The origins of the crescent white moon in the upper left corner are not clearly known. It is thought that this logo may have been worn by troops on their caps during the Revolutionary War.

The South Carolina flag is one of the most highly rated designs, according to a 2001 survey conducted by NAVA (North American Vexillological Association). It is popularly used in clothing items.

The design may have come about in 1775 as a design for troops to carry into battle during the American Revolution. The South Carolina flag was officially adopted on January 28th, 1861.
