South Carolina Secession Flag

#H32P $23.00 polyester

3x5' finished with rugged canvas heading and grommets

When South Carolina seceded, this flag flew over the customs house in Charleston and then in various cities around the state as a symbol of secession itself. This flag was NOT the national flag of an independent South Carolina.  It predates the secession of all the states and of the Confederacy.  As such it is an expression of public sentiment at the time.  The crescent, a South Carolina symbol since revolutionary times, is upside down which is said to be a sign of distress.  The star is said to symbolize Southern unity.  It then became a South Carolinian Navy flag.
