Blackbeards Flag Hat. Made in Greenville, SC USA. Built on the Richardson 112 Hat
The horned skeleton is seen as raising his hand to the devil, "toasting the Devil." The speared hand piercing the heart signifies that no quarter would be given to those who would attemptto fight against his ship's will to steal and plunder.
Many historians believe that the horned skeleton is inaccurate, stating that if the artist wanted to portray Death, he would have only used a skeleton. If he wanted to portray the Devil, a devil form would have been used instead of bones. It was unknown at that time to mix the symbols of Deathand the Devil.
