Description of the flag

Charleston's city hall flies the S&S, the state flag, and what was presumably the city flag, blue with a white emblem that appeared to be a coat of arms framed by an ornate cartouche-type design. I couldn't make out the details.

Variant Flag

The flag image shown in the American Flag Survey (2004) is essentially identical the one at the top of this page, except for seal disc, which is blue on white instead of white on blue.

American City Flags records an earlier version of the Charleston flag. The seal here has been amended to reflect that extant in 1882. A good example and some details about it can be found at www.charlestonfootprints.com/charleston-blog/enlightening-latin/2014/01/28/. A very informative history of the seal, "The Seal of the City of Charleston" can be found at www.charleston-sc.gov/DocumentCenter/View/4251.
