South Carolina fails to pick official state flag again this year. Here's what happened

South Carolina will have to make do without an official flag for at least another year after state lawmakers failed to pick one this legislative session.

A bill for a proposed official state flag remained stuck on the Senate calendar this session and never even made it to a vote. The bill faced its main opposition from Sen. Brad Hutto, D-Orangeburg, who also stood against setting an official flag last year.

We have a state flag, its been that way for 250 years weve got one of the most recognizable flags in the nation, Hutto said on Friday.

Attempts to reach Sen. Ronnie Cromer, R-Newberry, the bills sponsor, were unsuccessful Friday.

1. It sure is.

Every time I see it I recognize it. I recognize the racism, the bias against anything that is not pasty white and male, the place that started the insurrection that was the Civil War. Oh yes, very recognizable. (Idiot.)

2. It's a tree and a crescent

Other than looking kind of amateurish as far as flags go, I don't see an issue with it.

3. You must be thinking of another state. This is SC's flag.



It's strange, but not racist. IMO

4. I am referring to the state it represents

Not the flag itself.
