Description of the flag

A horned skeleton with an hourglass in the right hand and a spear in the left pointed to a heart with three blots.

Blackbeard is known to have flown the "deaths head"; Johnson's History of the Pirates shows his ship flying the skull and crossbones only. All other flags attributed to Blackbeard are fictional.
