The state flag of South Carolina was adopted on January 28, 1861. The crescent symbol represents the silver emblem worn on the caps of South Carolina troops during the revolutionary war, and the background color matches the blue of their uniforms. Crescents were also a component of a banner carried by South Carolina protesters of the Stamp Act in 1776. The flag also features the state tree (sabal palmetto).
About the Art:
The Palmetto votive is a great addition to lighten up a table indoors or out! If displayed outdoors, the votive will continually rust beautifully in the elements; but If you wish to reduce further rusting, we suggest applying a clear mat lacquer which will need to be reapplied over time. It has a ring inside it made for any standard tea light. This is a perfect gift for weddings, birthday, or just because!
