Pirate Flag Coloring Page
The skull and crossbones that were flown on pirate ships became known as the Jolly Roger. It was meant as a symbol of death. This was a warning to other ships.Although it's common to see these flags as black and white, the original pirate flags were red.

Treasure Chest Coloring
Although there are legends about pirates burying their treasure, in reality, few did. The pirate best known for burying treasure was William Kidd, better known as Captain Kidd. Otherwise, treasure was shared among the crew members.

Pirates of the Caribbean Captain Jack Sparrow
My favorite pirate, although fictional, is that of Captain Jack Sparrow, portrayed in the Disney movie series by Johnny Depp. I can't even imagine someone else playing this role. He originally based his character on Keith Richards of the rock band The Rolling Stones.

Did you know that not all pirates were lawbreakers? During the Elizabethan Era, which ran from 1558-1603, there were pirates who were authorized by their country to attack ships from countries which were thought to be enemies.
Ever wonder why you don't see many female pirates on pirate ships? That's because they were thought to bring bad luck.Eye patches are closely associated with pirates. They didn't wear them because their eyes were injured or missing, they wore them to condition themselves to be able to see in the dark.
