A pennant was a triangular flag flown by ships at sea during the Age of Piracy.


The Intercepter

The Interceptor flies the blue commissioning pennant.

The British Royal Navy was known to use three pennants during the 18th century, red, white, and blue. All three pennants had a small St George's Cross, the symbol of England, in the corner. Those pennants meant the vessels flying them were commissioned ships of war in service of the Royal Navy.

The Empress, the flagship of the Pirate Lord Sao Feng, flew the pennants from all three of her masts before the Battle of Calypso's maelstrom.

During the Quest for the Fountain of Youth all three galleons of The Spaniard's fleet flew the pennants consisting of three horizontal stripes: red, yellow and red, the colors of the Spanish monarchy.[1]
