Long before New Providence in the Bahamas, Henry Avery set the example by living long enough to enjoy his booty. Like Captain Flint in Black Flags, a wholly fictitious character, Avery was the real deal and also a former officer in the British Royal Navy. He was considered the benchmark to aspire to so I had to have his flag. Sturdy, good looking and durable indoors or outside at raucous parties. This is a good one to have.
