History
Pirates - Piracy is defined by Roget's dictionary as 'robbery or illegal violence at sea'. Piracy is similar to privateering which is state-sponsored piracy authorised by national authorities. The etymology of the word 'pirate' is Medieval Latin "piratia", from Late Greek "peirateia", from Greek "peirates".

The Jolly Roger is the name given to any of various flags flown to identify a ship's crew as pirates. Since the decline of piracy, various military units have used the Jolly Roger, usually in skull-and-crossbones design, as a unit identification insignia or a victory flag to ascribe to themselves the proverbial ferocity and toughness of pirates.
