Flags

Whether it is the famous three lions of King Richard or the Union Jack, historical flags have represented honor and show allegiance and pride. Flags, banners, standards, call them what you will, they represent countries and militaries, identify territories, honor royalty, and can act as warnings. Pirates and Privateers of all sorts made flags to instill fear, the most famous being the skull and crossbones.

In antiquity, standards were used in warfare to identify the various factions fighting and reigned over a victorious battlefield. Examples include the eagle carried by the Roman aquilifer or the dragon standard of the Sarmatians. The latter would fly freely in the wind, carried by a horseman, similar to a kite. Beginning in the Middle Ages and later, flags were used primarily as a symbol of identity in battle, which made it easier to identify a knight than only from the heraldic symbol painted on the shield or tunic. The increasing use of flags during the high medieval period was gradually adopted by city-states. During the Age of Sail, especially in the early 17th century, it was common (later a legal obligation) for ships to bear flags designating their nationality; these flags would eventually evolve into present-day national flags. Flags also became the preferred means to convey messages at sea.

Whether carried into battle or flown on your porch, our flags will fly high. We carry iconic pirate flags, plus many historical flags from various eras, that are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. All of these are great for display, teaching, home use, or reenacting.

Review of: Brethren of The Coast Flag

I like how rough and hand drawn this appears. It was difficult to find this one so when I saw it here, I pounced. Some of these pirates and flags are fictionalized but the Brethren of the Coast was a loosely affiliated band that has historical citation. Crossed swords rather than bones is a particular favorite of mine. Storming over the side with a dagger between the teeth when both hands are needed to clear the gunwales is an accurate look. My favorite for showing the black.

Review of: Brethren of The Coast Flag

Dear madam or sir,

     For a hard $10.00 bill this flag was the buy of a life time. Frankly, this flag makes quite a bedroom piece. In the event a lady friend wants to know exactly what she's "got there", one hard look at this flag says it all. I would have liked more definition, for more money of coarse. Finally, thank you again for the buy of a life time.

Respectfully submitted,

Patrick
