THE LTC MARQUE:Pirate /ˈpīrət/ ~ A person who attacks and raids ships at sea; a sea-plunderer, one who without authority and by violence seizes or interferes with a ship or property of another; one who makes use or reproduces the work of another without authorization. Jean Lafitte's preferred victim on the high seas was England's East India Company, who branded Lafitte, "The Bastard of Barataria." As retribution for the insult, the Pirate King pilfered their famous marque as his own, infuriating King George III.

NO QUARTER: When Pirates hoisted the blood red flag it signified "No Quarter" given, meaning that no mercy would be shown, and no life would be spared. In contrast, a "Jolly Roger" or black flag meant that those who surrendered without a fight would be allowed to live. Once a battle began, if ordered by the Captain, the "Jolly Roger" was lowered and replaced with the "No Quarter" flag signifying the Pirates would now take no prisoners and give no quarter to their enemy...AYE! TUEZ-LES TOUS!
