South Carolina State Pledge to State Flag
Pledge to State Flag
on April 22,1966.
The official State Pledge to the Flag of South Carolina was adopted by Act Number 910 of 1966. The pledge was originally written in 1950 by Mrs. John R.
Carson for the South Carolina Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
The pledge is as follows:
"I salute the flag of South Carolina
and pledge to the Palmetto State love, loyalty and faith.""
ADOPTING AN OFFICIAL PLEDGE TO THE FLAG OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, in 1950 Mrs. John Raymond Carson of Chester wrote for the South Carolina Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy a pledge to the flag
of South Carolina; and
Whereas, it has been accepted and used throughout the State but has never been officially adopted as our State pledge; and
Whereas, the members of the Wade Hampton Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy have requested that this pledge be made the official State pledge. Now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Pledge to the flag of South Carolina.--The pledge to the flag of South Carolina shall be as follows:
"I salute the flag of South Carolina and pledge to the Palmetto State love, loyalty, and faith."
SECTION 2. Time effective.--This act shall take effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 22nd day of April, 1966.
