Well mateys- what arrr yer favorite jolly roger- classic skull and crossbones, cutlasses, skeleton with bloody heart, bloody red flag or what- if you want -you can take own flag to represent you in this group- take one of the historical ones or invent your own... i dunno. Also i have made a bit research throughout the internet and it is surprising to find out that many of those flags usually associated with famous pirates are not certain at all....

Sorry, I meant to comment on this and got sidetracked cleaning up my older MOCs. I am pulling the old photos off the pages here and running them through Office Picture Manager to give them a cleaner look.
As for the flags. Let me do a bit of research and I will create one for me and my area!! Hint, it will have skulls on it, surprise huh?

As i said i made abit research- flag commonly associated with Blackbeard is a black flag with the white skeleton with devilhorns -holding an hourglass or a cup and piercing a red bleeding heart with a long spear- however there is no clear evidence- documents says that he fly under the "Death's head" meaning sort of skullflag of course- my personal favourite is one that the symbol of this brethren is based on- flag flown by Calico Jack Rackham- real life Jack Sparrow (maybe?) it is not certain either but possible- skull with two cutlasses crossed- it is also probable that it originally was flown by Charles Vane- one of the Blackbeard's companions- Rackham was the one who was selected captain after Vane was voted out of office in the mutiny... well real pirate history is interesting- it was Calico Jack btw who had those famous female pirates Anne Bonney and Mary Read aboard his ship and Bonney was his lover... Most legendary "jolly roger" is probably the one of Edward England skull with crossbones- it is said that Samuel Bellamy used that also...

Well- i must say that there is better- but i am familiar with that too- there is another good piratefact site: http://blindkat.hegewisch.net/pirates/pirates.html and one more here http://www.thepirateking.com/ but in the last page it disturbs me that the guy who keeps it likes too much to show himself...

My pirates flag has two variations.

On is a reversed skull+crossbones (white flag with black skull and bones), and the other variation is in stead of bones crossing the skull a broken sword
