This flag, commonly referred to as "The Moultrie Flag," was carried by Colonel William Moultrie's South Carolina Militia on Sullivan's Island in Charleston Harbor on June 28, 1776. The British were defeated that day which saved the South from British occupation for another two years. This flag was also present at the liberation of Charleston on December 14, 1782 by Greene's Southern Continental & Militia Army — marking the end of the Revolutionary War and final victory in South Carolina. Colonel Moultrie states in his memoirs, "This was the first American Flag displayed in the South." Some versions of this flag have the work "Liberty" in the crescent moon. The South Carolina state flag still contains the crescent moon (a symbol of legitimate authority) from this Revolutionary War era flag.
