V3 CIVILIAN OPERATOR SALVATION
This patch is another mashup of a few ideas blended into one. Always look to the cross and stand ready is the main thing. Remember the forgiveness of sins, the ultimate sacrifice that has change human history. A flare of 1776... the concept of freedom moved through the evangelical churches like wildfire back then. It was everyday people who trusted God for the strength to overcome a tyrannical government. The idea of God and the "Appeal to Heaven" was a very real in colonial life. Also to toss this all together with Black Beard's Flag as it connects all the symbols. To be a rebel for a cause, to stand for righteousness in a wicked generation . Do not compromise your beliefs and always focus on the cross. I believe this speaks to all the civilian operators out there. The understanding of preparedness and the means to be ready. The minuteman load out and to push your capabilities. I do hope this encourages you, to get your priorities together. There may come a time where 'No Quarter' will be given.
The design of the flag consisted of a horned skeleton raising an hourglass "toasting the Devil" in its right hand. In the skeleton's left hand, it held a spear pointing towards a red heart which had three drops of red blood below it, supposedly to signal that no quarter would be given. The historian E. T. Fox affirmed that this flag design would not have been of 18th-century pirate origin because, if the skeleton was meant to represent the Devil, then it would not have been a skeleton, and if it was supposed to represent Death, then it would not have been horned. Most pirate flags at the time would have used simple imagery based on Christian symbols of mortality. Flags of a similar design had been used by Edward Low, Francis Spriggs and Charles Harris.
