Flags
Flown by Calico
Jack Rackham
They would fly false
flags until they had
their enemy within
firing range. Then the
Jolly Roger would be
raised, often with a
warning shot.
The flag of
Blackbeard
Flag of Christopher Moody
Flying a Jolly Roger proved them a
pirate. Just having or using a Jolly
Roger was considered proof that
they were a criminal pirate , not
legitimate. Only a pirate would fly
the Jolly Roger, because he was
already under threat of execution
Walter
Kennedy’s
flag
