I'm quite fond of the flag.  I try to make sure every flag in my port has a ship of some description.  A lot of the USN ships I have fly Military Month tho.

The temptation to just run it everywhere has crossed my mind more than once... :cap_book:

Missed it last year by an hour, glad to have the red roger this time around. I fly it on my "From the Bottom" Hood and Bismarck for maximum Black Pearl points.

Corgi and crossbones is the only flag I fly

I had a question about that.  Do you get the flag for being a corgi captain or destroying a corgi captain?  The description sounds like its only for corigi captains but I have one.

Got one from last year.

 

It would be great if flags had varying bonuses. Would be great to fly more than one too.

I first though it was exclusive to Corgi Captains and the description seems to point to that as well.  But like you, many people got it for sinking a Corgi so apparently it wasn't exclusive. Niko did say that neither it nor the great wave corgi flag will be issued out again.

Thank you, I was just curious if I was cheating the system or not.  I fly it proudly off my masts now.  Sorry if it ruins the exclusiveness for you.
