JOLLY ROGER THE REAL NAME OF THE PIRATE FLAG
Originating in the golden age of piracy in the early 1700s, the Jolly Roger was the name given to the flags used to identify a pirate ship about to attack.
The term Jolly Roger is thought to come from the French “joli rouge” in reference to the red flag of a French privateer.
Privateers and buccaneers used red flags to signal to other ships that no mercy or prisoners would be taken once their ship was captured. Later, “pretty red” would become “Jolly Roger” due to a mispronunciation by English sailors.
Another story says that the name comes from “Old Roger”. An English term referring to the devil.
The term Jolly Roger has been used throughout the ages and is now the official name of all pirate flags. The most famous emblem is the black flag with a skull and crossbones.
Often pirate flags had a personal message, an hourglass, swords, spears cutting a heart…. Each pirate ship had its own flag.LEARN MORE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE JOLLY ROGER
