Could Symbolism In Nikki Haley’s “Meet The Press” Necklace Be Wrongly Interpreted Abroad?

by Anura Guruge

IF you watched today’s “Meet The Press“, were observant and have good eyes you would have noticed the pendent on Nikki Haley’s necklace — Nikki (of Indian-origin) being Donald’s Trump’s ‘far from subservient’ Ambassador to the U.N. 

If you missed it, here is a picture and you can catch the interview at NBC by clicking on this link.

Yes, that happens to be a symbol of South Carolina — she having been the Governor of South Carolina. That is sweet of her to wear that.

But, that necklace would have had a LOT of FOLKS overseas scratching their heads and WONDERING whether she was trying to send some kind of coded message.


It contains a Crescent Moon!

The Crescent Moon has very major symbology particularly when it comes to the Middle East.

I doubt whether many outside of the U.S. — actually outside of S.C. — appreciate that that is a S.C. symbol.


Didn’t she realize?

Didn’t somebody tell her?

I didn’t watch the whole interview, BUT did Chuck make a comment to explain to his audience that she was not trying to be cute.

    When I first saw it, I wondered whether it was an Islamic crescent and a palm tree (as seen on the Saudi coat of arms).

    But after a little bit of research, I discovered that they’re the symbols found on the flag of South Carolina: a palmetto tree and a gorget.

    And then I wondered to myself, “which state was she the governor of?”

    A tiny bit more research tied everything together: she was the governor of South Carolina.

    Yes, to someone not inclined to do any of this research, the symbols might be misinterpreted.

      Exactly. I did exactly what you did as you can see in the post. But, many people will be like the two of us at the start … why is she wearing a crescent moon. The Arabian “Red Cross” uses the crescent moon. Thanks.
