Best Answer

The Jolly Roger, a.k.a. skull and crossbones, is the name generally given to all pirate flags. However, different pirates flew different flags. Pirate flags were used to wage psychological warfare on their enemies. Pirate flags were designed to threaten, intimidate and spread fear & dread amongst all that encountered the pirate. A pirate flag's history was an important element in building the fearsome reputation of the pirate vessel. Many pirate flags had a red or black background. The flag was often embellished with threatening symbols, such as a skull, bones, skeleton, cutlass and hourglass.
