What are famous pirate flags?

Blackbeard: The notorious Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard, let his reputation speak for itself when he ran up his Jolly Roger: “Resist and you will bleed.”

Bartholomew Roberts: Above the flagship of his pirate fleet, the dreaded “Black Bart” flew a flag depicting him standing on the heads of his enemies.

Samuel Bellamy: Flying the skull and crossbones – a universal symbol of poison, disease, and death – “Black Sam” plundered more than 50 ships to become the wealthiest pirate of the 18th century.

John “Calico Jack” Rackham: Cutlasses replaced the traditional crossed bones on the flag of this sharp-dressing real-life version of Captain Jack Sparrow.
