6.   Did you know…  That the crescent-shaped object on South Carolina’s state flag, to the left of the palmetto tree, isn’t intended to be a crescent moon?  Instead, it’s most likely a gorget, a metal shield that soldiers wore around their necks to protect their throat and chest several hundred years ago.   That crescent shape, but with the tips pointed up, also was worn on South Carolina troops’ caps during Revolutionary times.

Previous Did You Knows are available.
