Okay, since LadySky seems to have won by a landslide (whether she wanted to or not

The Jolly Roger, aka the skull and crossbones, wasn't flown by pirate vessels nearly as much as old movies would have you believe; but there's some evidence that it was used. More terrifying than that, though, was the red flag, sometimes used by pirates or other vessels to indicate that no quarter would be given in battle.
