Up the date of adhesion to The Union.
This reverse is made up of all the symbols of South Carolina, the wren is the state bird and the yellow jasmine is the flower.

 

These symbols have endured since the natives of the area venerated them centuries ago.
The origin of the palm tree was the War of Independence, in 1776 the settlers built a small fort made of palm tree trunks to defend the port of Charleston from the British, Colonel William Moultrie kept the English warships at bay for more than 9 and a half hours, it was the first battle won against the British Army in the War of Independence, since then South Carolina has been nicknamed "The Palmetto state".
The choice of these symbols to represent the State would be: The strength of the State (Palm Tree), the hospitality of its citizens (Wren) and the beauty of its nature in spring (Jasmine).
