A classic Jolly Roger

There are many different versions of the Jolly Roger but the skull and crossbones, as seen to the right, was the first model. The first known recording of when the Jolly Roger was flown was in 1700. The origin of the flag is unknown, but it is believed to be based off of the french term "joli rogue" which met "pretty red" which was later corrupted into Jolly Roger, meaning pretty red, that is to be believed why some pirates, such as Henry Avery had a red flag instead of the classic black.
