  • Ned Low's historic Jolly Roger is often affiliated with that of Blackbeard, and was used in the films for Brethren Court member Eduardo Villanueva. The flag can be seen hanging over the entrance to Tortuga Tavern, though in context it likely represents the flag of Villanueva. The flag also appears in Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure hanging in the Caverns of Misfortune near the corpses of Villenueva and other Brethren Court members, and at the entrance to Tokyo Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean.[1]
