The PiratesCoveOnline.com website was created by The Star Carlton Company using a custom OsCommerce platform. All text and image content was provided by the client. We put the site together using their guidelines on how they wanted the content laid out. Provided client images were optimized for the web and were renamed for seo purposes.
Historically, the pirate flag was flown to frighten pirate victims into surrendering without a fight, since it conveyed the message that the attackers were outlaws who would not consider themselves bound by the usual rules of engagement and might, therefore, slaughter those they defeated (since captured pirates were usually hanged, they didn’t have much to gain by asking quarter if defeated). The same message was sometimes conveyed by a red pirate flag.
Note: Website may have been changed by the client after completion.
