This meticulous design includes multiple pineapple and Palmetto Palm pairs surrounded by a gold Greek key motif. The border includes many smaller pineapples and Palmetto Palms on a very dark blue background that can coordinate with much in your wardrobe. The Palmetto Palm became the South Carolina state tree and adorned the state flag some years after the Battle of Fort Moultrie in 1776. Earlier that year, a crude palmetto-log fort had been built on Sullivan’s Island as a first line of defense for Charleston. On June 28, the formidable British fleet attached and a small American force, led by Colonel William Moultrie, held its position despite all-day shelling. Even though the British had far superior firepower at their disposal, the spongy palmetto logs and sand that comprised the American fort absorbed most of the enemy shells before they could explode.

This scarf is delivered in our deluxe gift box, signed by the artist, and includes an insert with the history of the Palmetto Palm, the South Carolina state tree and history of the symbol for welcome, the pineapple.
