Flag of South Carolina
The state flag of South Carolina was adopted in 1861; it features the sabal palmetto and a crescent moon on a blue background. Crescents were a component of a banner carried by South Carolina protesters of the Stamp Act in 1776. Sabal palmetto is the state tree and is also seen on the state seal and state quarter (South Carolina's nickname is "The Palmetto State").
