Flags

  • Jolie Rouge or the Bloody Flag: A plain red flag and the sign of no quarter or mercy. [1b]
  • Pirate Marks or the Black: Designs on a black background that warned a victim ship to give over without a fight, or informed another pirate of a fellow. If a pirate displayed his black before an attack and you surrendered without a fight, he was obliged to show mercy. [1b]

The Cross

Pirate captains do not usually carry their riches with them but often bury them and keep a private and often coded chart. On that chart is a cross, an X, which marks the location of his buried trove. When a captain reaches the end of his career on the waves, he and his crew sail for that cross uncover the riches and share them out, a portion to every man as befits his duty, service and rank. [1i]

Jeremiah Tusk set sail for his Cross with his crew, and he was the first such captain that Luka Silvaro had ever known to retire. [1i]
