Description of the flag

With a new branding program to attract economic development to the town, the town of Pelzer adopted a new town logo and flag with the help of the design firm Lunchbox Creative of Anderson, SC. It was adopted (or first appeared) in December 2020.

The description of the flag is from an article of the Anderson Observer: "The flag’s blue hues represent the town’s proximity to the Saluda River. Indigo symbolizes Pelzer’s founding by those from other areas of South Carolina, with two darker blue strips on either side of the indigo color representing the upper and lower mills. The darker blue also is symbolic of the mill’s smokestacks that people remember seeing before they were torn down or burned down.
In the center of the flag is an illustration of a gear that represents the industrialization of the town. On the front of the gear is a white acorn with white oak leaves growing out of it to represent future growth. In addition to numerous oak trees throughout the town, the family crest of the Francis Pelzer family features acorns."
