This may sound silly but I have a question regarding the position & orientation of the crescent on the flag. How does it look on the reverse side of the flag? I've only seen one side & I was wondering how it looks on both sides. Please help to educate me as I'm trying to create a flag. (old school by hand)

The standard convention is for the obverse to be a mirror image (not for wording) i.e., the relationship to the hoist is unchanged. So if the crescent faces the hoist on one side it will do the same on the other. Whether SC follows this convention I don't know.

As a Sandlapper born and raised I can confirm, yes it does. The Palmetto is a later addition.

Thanks for the imput – so if I have it straight the crescent is ( with the horns facing out on both sides – right?
