HMS Safari Pirate Flag – Jolly Roger
Size: 3 X 5 ft.
The skull and cross bones came from the symbol used in ships’ logs, where it represented death onboard. And the name of the flag Jolly Roger is thought to have come from the French phrase ‘joli rouge’ meaning ‘pretty red’. But it was not only pirate ships that have flown the Jolly Roger, Royal Navy submarines adopted the practice since the First World War after a critic likened their crew to pirates.
The HMS Safari Pirate flag was flown by the Second World War submarine HMS Safari of the British Royal Navy. The actual flag pictured above is on display at the exhibition at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
