US state flags have to be designed around a ceremonial crest, many colors, and a Latin line similiar to ‘E Pluribus Greedus”. In other words pompous.
South Carolina has a simple Palmetto Tree and Half Moon. As flags go it’s not bad.

Difficult to photograph, but so worth it.
The rotunda on this building is often seen in skyline photographs, yet I have never shot the inside. Gibbes Art Museum, Charleston.
