South Carolina celebrating inaugural Flag Day - State & Regional - Wire - TheState.com: "CHARLESTON, S.C. — South Carolina is celebrating its state flag for the first time with a special day.
Friday is the 150th anniversary of the adoption of the well-known blue flag with the palmetto and crescent. A ceremony at Fort Moultrie on Sullivans Island marks the occasion.
The flag was adopted after South Carolina seceded from the Union but before the Confederacy was formed the following month."
