Francis Drake Flag of Pirate ~ Sterling Silver Jewelry Pendant TP3085
Francis Drake was born in 1540 to a farming family in Plymouth, England. His first sailing experience was as a young man aboard merchant and later slave ships as a navigator. In a series of privateering raids, Drake was commissioned in 1570 by the Queen to sail to America with two ships and some 70 men with his very own Flag of Pirate designed to frighten and intimidate their targets emphasized in this sterling silver pendant of DiveSilver Jewelry. In those years, the Francis Drake Flag of Pirate has reflected the feelings of the pirates as well as the fear they wished to evoke.
