In the 1700s, pirates began referring to their flags — usually consisting of skull-and-crossbones on a black backdrop — as the “Jolly Roger.” The pirate who coined the name is thought to be Bartholomew Roberts, in June of 1721. Also known as Black Bart, he was the most successful buccaneer of the Golden Age of Piracy, capturing over 400 ships in his storied career.
