I believe that the reason why the flag is red and white is because 2 black and white pirate flags already exist in the game, and some diversity goes a long way in this community. No need to have 3 similar flags.

The red flag flown by naval vessels in wartime meant a fight to the finish. Among pirates, flying a red flag signaled "no quarter" to any ship’s crew that resisted, but guaranteed the safety of all aboard if the ship surrendered without a fight. Some pirates in the 18th century have flown red variations of the traditional pirate flag, the Jolly Roger.

It REALLY be nice/cool if it gave an extra 5% credit "booty" bonus  because..well, cmon!

 

Translated into pirate speek that would be

 

"Yarrr it'd be really nice if it surrendered 5% credit booty 'cuase well yarrrr there matey."

That flag represents Blackbeard's cousin, Redbeard. He wasn't a successful pirate though because he forced his crew to wear red shirts. Also, credits already counts as booty so it would be redundant to say "booty booty" :trollface:

Yarr west coast pirate I be- way more laid back. East coasters are too uptight in the way they fasten their jibs mate.

 

 

 

The more important question is obviously, "Why is all the rum gone?"

 More importantly is askin' - why is there no rum keg in the flag?

It's a keeper when you earn it. Why would it be any way else?
