Our Prize Contest Trivia Question

A History Question From Real Life
What is the name of the flag generally associated with pirates
in the 17th and 18th centuries?

And the Answer Is:

jolly-rogerThe Jolly Roger!

This design was used by several pirates, including Captains “Black Sam” Bellamy, Edward England, and John Taylor. Some Jolly Roger flags also include an hourglass, another common symbol representing death in 17th- and 18th-century Europe. Despite the prominence of flags with art in popular culture, plain black flags with no art were often employed by most pirates in the 17th-18th century.

Historically, the flag was flown to frighten pirates’ victims into surrendering without a fight, since it conveyed the message that the attackers were outlaws who would not consider themselves bound by the usual rules of engagement—and might, therefore, slaughter those they defeated (since captured pirates were usually hanged, they did not have much to gain by asking quarter if defeated). The same message was sometimes conveyed by a red flag. From Wikipedia.

We had 29 entries and of those 27 provided the correct information. The 3 of us here at the Portal picked 2 numbers each; we counted through the emails as they were received and those were our winners. We picked numbers 1, 4, 7, 13, 14 and 24.

Congratulations to our 6 Captains Who Submitted The Correct Answers!!
