Statesman Tie’s South Carolina Tie was designed to represent the flag of South Carolina. The palmetto tree and crescent symbol in the corner is taken directly from the flag of the state of South Carolina. As well, we used the orange and white colors from the state license plate as contrasting colors to tie everything together with the navy blue of the flag; the major color for our tie.
Some interesting facts about the flag of South Carolina:
“In 1775, Colonel William Moultrie was asked by the Revolutionary Council of Safety to design a flag for the South Carolina troops to use during the American Revolutionary War. Moultrie’s design had the blue of the militia’s uniforms and the crescent. It was first flown at Fort Johnson. This flag was flown in the defense of a new fortress on Sullivan’s Island, when Moultrie faced off against a British fleet that had not lost a battle in a century.
The palmetto was added in 1861, also a reference to Moultrie’s defense of Sullivan’s Island; the fortress he’d constructed had survived largely because the palmettos, laid over sand walls, were able to withstand British cannon.” (Source: here.)
