Captain Midnight those be mighty fine colours.

Very nice work, Nathaniel. It has a classical look. I hope you don't mind but I took the liberty of making a weathered version.

Hoisting my Jolly Roger over our boarding school dorm in 1983:

This flag made its most noteable appearance in December 1985, when I hoisted it on a 5,000 GRT tanker going from the Mediterranean into the Atlantic (i.e. crossing the Gibraltar Strait).

I still wonder to this day why the Limeys didn't challenge us!

:P:P:P thats a really nice one!

Here's one I doodled up recently, in the "classical" white on black. I'm also leaning towards a black on red version...

In the interests of full disclosure, this started as a vague idea for a new tattoo, and just didn't stop.

One crew is under the command of Captain Shite and sails on the Fiddler's Green, the other is under my command and sails on the Fortune. Here is our flag, flown over each ship, and each commander's personal colors.

I just recently received the small scale version of the sign for Black's Coffeehouse from the sign maker. A wonderful piece of work. And to think, he only asked to be paid in coffee :lol:

and a close-up of the actual image, a Janus Face. Fitting in that it represents looking to the past & the future, something we do a lot of in reenacting.

The flag of Captain Jonah Micagie Greene (Captain Midnight). The final version of my flag. I have had two others before this one, that were not quite historical looking enough for me, so I came up with this design that I am finally happy and content with. It's a "done deal" now, as I have also stitched the real-life version in fabric. The design is all stitched to the background on both sides of the flag.

Here is a pic of my crew's flag in my signature (minus the name and the green field. I actually want to pick some peoples minds on ideas and where is a good place to get a great price on getting this done. Trying to keep this on the hush hush so I can surprise my crew with it. I am debating on keeping the original blue and orange, or go with a simple black and white. Also again if any of ya have an idea of a good place to get this done it would be very much appreciated (would love to get it done before LI Pirate Fest).
