The Jolly Roger flag design was used by several pirates, including Captains Edward England and John Taylor.
Since the decline of piracy, various military units have used the Jolly Roger Flag, usually in skull-and-crossbones design, as a unit identification insignia or a victory flag to ascribe to themselves the proverbial ferocity and toughness of pirates.
