The Jolly Roger flag was used by a ship’s crew to identify themselves as pirates.

Most people associate the Jolly Roger flag today as a skull above two long bones arranged in an X. The following photo blog will be split into a two part series featuring the most popular pirate flags from the Golden Age of Piracy.
