Our Fort Moultrie Flags are constructed of durable nylon for long-lasting color outdoors. Finished with a heavy-duty canvas heading, solid brass grommets, and four rows of reinforced stitching on the fly end, our flags withstand the most extreme weather conditions. 100% Made in U.S.A.
This flag was flown over the Fortifications on Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, as they battled a British Invasion. When the flag fell during the course of the battle, it was lifted by Sergeant William Jasper, who held it until a new flagstaff could be improvised, claiming, “We cannot fight without a flag.” But they fought valiantly with the flag, fending off the British fleet and telling their commander, Sir Peter Parker.
This decisive battle was the first British loss at sea in years, and prevented them from the capacity for a Southern invasion for a long while afterward. The flag was enhanced with the bold word “Liberty” to reflect the dreams of the Colonists.
