Stede Bonnet was known as the "gentleman pirate." He was originally a high ranking individual, known as Major Stede Bonnet and came from an upright English family in Virginia. Bonnet was also known as one of the very few pirates who had prisoners "walk the plank". Bonnet's flag depicts a scale of pirate justice - a dagger for battle and a heart for life on each side.
Bonnet's flag is traditionally represented as a white skull above a horizontal long bone between a heart and a dagger.
