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).

...It's going to be hard to keep hush hush when a bunch of us are regulars in the pub, my dear. That and you coming out to the living room and telling. ;P

Doesn't it look like you could just crawl into his skull with a comfy blanky and look out dreamily out to sea from the star that's been carved from his forehead? Plus, if anyone tried to bother, it can shoot 'em without leaving the comfy spot... =)

Too many flags, too little time spent actually sewing them . . .

I will use these two:

One of my favorites from history-

I like how the crossed bones imitate the Scot saltire on this one:

(Plus my lazy-rump doesn't have to actually sew them up! OK, so they are poly-something, cheap, and thin . . . )

One of the ones I want to make sooner than later is:

- A blue/white Scot Saltire with a PC skull emblazoned on the center.

--- If I get smart and finish all my needed projects, I'll be bringing that one to Lockhouse in July to start/finish.

Plus, I have several stretches of weight wool in black/dark navy. I just need to decide what to do and how.

- Some will be the sewn and cut-out style

- Some will be straight-out painted (using acrylic art paint)

- At least one will be a solid black/navy

- A tartan one with a winged hourglass

-- That will be a LARGE one, using some cotton black with a small red and yellow sett.

- One in Wallace tartan, with an arm and sword (like in the Wallace clan crest).

--- Based on the material at-hand, that one will be a heavy cotton and be 2 x 3 and will be used at car shows and Scottish Games.

- One on green with arm with dagger (ala Gunn clan crest)

I suppose this one qualifies.

The Logo of the UK Pirate Brotherhood.

I came up with this when it struck me that the space in the pre 1801 Union Jack that would eventually be occupied by the St Patrick's cross, could be filled with cross-bones.

Then I prettied it up for the web forum

BTW, Although the site is geared up for British pirate enthusiasts, and is perhaps the poor English cousin to this site, I am more than happy to welcome input from anybody who has something to say.

William Red Wake is unquestionably the king of creating magnificent Jolly Rogers. Indeed, the only thing that could possibly be said against his work is that it is better than most pirates armed with just a needle, thread, and dyed cloth could possibly have managed.

My own avatar, the flag of Maureen MacLinden and her crew, the Cutlass' Daughters, obviously suffers in comparison: here's the close-up.

Here's mine. The Pirates of Ill Repute. Landlocked pirates we be, sailin' the high plains!

I favor a simple, traditional style flag, but with a fun Colorado twist. It's been referred to as our "Jolly Bison."

And below, the "Brethren of the Plains" banner I created. The Brethren of the Plains is a loose association of landlocked buccaneers I'm trying to assemble from the crews of various pirate groups throughout Colorado, the Rockies, and the Great Plains.

My first impression of the meaning of that flag was "Cut the Bull Shyte" LoL

Bright did you get your name from the colors that you wear? Or are you just that smart? :)
