Edward Teach’s other more famous name was Blackbeard, and he was well known for his theatrics and commandeering ships using fear rather than force. According to legend, he used to put fuses in his beard and light them during a battle in order for the smoke to give him a demonic appearance and instill fear in his enemies. His flag had a horned skeleton making a toast in one hand and holding a spear in the other and pointing it to a red heart dripping with blood. The horns were meant to give it a devilish appearance, and the dripping heart meant a very slow and torturous death was coming to those he attacked.

Stede Bonnet was a wealthy English landowner before he decided to turn to piracy in the early 18th century. He usually attached ships in the Caribbean Seas and the Atlantic Ocean. Because of his former status as a high-ranking member of society, he was sometimes referred to as “The Gentleman Pirate”. His Jolly Roger had a skull and a single bone underneath it with a knife (violence) on one side and a heart (life) on the other; it was meant to represent the scale of pirate justice.
History is funny and cool.
My Top 5 Favorite Movie Death Scenes of ALL Time...per MY opinion!
1. The Iconic Face Melt (“Raiders Of The Lost Ark”) - I’m not gonna lie, but this entire scene feels STRAIGHT out of a horror movie, but it’s SO brilliantly well done! The soundtrack is still eerie to listen to, the makeup and visual effects still hold up today, and the overall climax is still breathtaking to watch! Hard for me to believe that this film received a PG rating back in the day, because, like I said, it feels like pure HORROR, and it’s definitely WAY too jarring for younger kids to handle!
2. Lumpy’s Demise in the Insect Pit (Peter Jackson’s “King Kong”) - I remembered when I first showed this movie to either my mother or my sister’s friends back in the day, and they ALL freaked out and looked away once Lumpy (Andy Serkis) gets eaten alive by these giant leeches during this big moment in the Insect Pit scene. One of the most creative death scenes for a character I’ve EVER seen on screen, especially in a PG-13 rated film!
3. The Defeat of Agent Smith (“The Matrix”) - What better way to defeat an impossible villain (Hugo Weaving) other than to have Neo (Keanu Reeves) enter his body and physically blow him up? “The Matrix” does that like a CHAMP! This scene is still mind-blowing to watch, the soundtrack is still epic, and the visual effects still hold up beautifully today!
4. Lord Beckett’s Biggest Mistake (“POTC: At World’s End”) - One of the most epic death scenes of all time! Regardless on whether if anyone really likes this movie or not, they’ve gotta at least admit that this death scene is VERY epic to watch! The stakes are high, the soundtrack is top-notch, the whole scene is brilliantly edited, and Lord Beckett (Tom Hollander) made the biggest mistake that costed both he and his ship’s crew their own lives! All he had to do was order his men to fire their cannons back at his opponents, but nope, he was in such a shock that the only thing he ever said was, “It’s just...good business.”
5. Doc’s Final Face-Off (“Baby Driver”) - Despite Kevin Spacey being an evil creep in real life, he at least gave one last awesome performance in “Baby Driver,” and his character, Doc, made an... ⬇️
1 of the only 2 original pirate flags left..
Thomas Tew was a 17th century English pirate who was famously known as the Rhode Island Pirate, and before his career in piracy begun, he was a privateer. He is most known for embarking on two major pirate cruises; he met his demise on the second cruise. The flag he flew on his ship was black and had an arm on it that was holding a cutlass. Although the sword signaled that violence was imminent, the black background was meant to signal that there was no need for bloodshed; pirates who wanted to show that violence was unavoidable used a red background.

Jack Rackham - famously known as Calico Jack, this English pirate’s career was more active as the Golden Age of Piracy was coming to an end. Calico Jack terrorized the Caribbean Sea with his crew. His flag is more notable because it is one of the more famous Jolly Roger variations. While the original Jolly Roger is a black flag with a white skull and two crossed bones underneath it, Rackham’s version replaced the bones with swords. The swords were meant to signal the pirate and his crew were ready and willing to get violent if the ship being attacked did not surrender.
