The South Carolina flag is a simple design of a white palmetto
tree under a white crescent moon on a blue field that matched
the South Carolina militia in 1775. The palmetto is the state
tree, South Carolina's nickname is "The Palmetto State",
and the state flag features the palmetto. These various tributes
are paid to the role of the palmetto in the British attack
on a Charleston Harbor log fort in 1776. The wood proved
so resilient that British cannon balls either sank into the
wood or bounced off, making the fort impenetrable.
