State colors

This mailbox flag tickled me. Even more when I noticed the South Carolina flag also flying in the yard.

  1. Neat flag. I see some great things on mailboxes.

  2. The tilt makes me think it is a sad little mailbox … When my youngest daughter was learning to drive I took her to the country roads in the upstate of South Carolina. I remember one mailbox which she came very close to hitting. I hope it was not this one.

  3. It is a cute little mailbox. that is the origin of the plant/tree on the state flag?

  4. Barb — thank you!

    Denton — the tilt does add personality!

    Norma — thanks for asking about that. I looked it up to get it right:
    http://www.scstatehouse.net/studentpage/flag.htm. Basically here’s the quote, “…Col. William Moultrie chose a blue [for the flag] which matched the color of [the S.C. state troops’] uniforms and a crescent which reproduced the silver emblem worn on the front of their caps. The palmetto tree was added later to represent Moultrie’s heroic defense of the palmetto-log fort on Sullivan’s Island against the attack of the British fleet on June 28, 1776.”
    The flag design is fun — because it’s different from a lot of others. I’m biased of course. 🙂
