Jolly Roger Pirate Flag Stickers
Fly Your Jolly Roger Flag Everyday
The Jolly Roger is the name given to any of various flags flown to identify a ship's crew as pirates. Historically, the flag was flown to frighten pirates' victims into surrendering, since it conveyed the message that the attackers were outlaws and were not bound by the usual rules of engagement. Learn about the pirates that flew them and see Jolly Roger pirate stickers available from Sticker Town.
