The Crimson Permanent Assurance

by Eugene Ipavec, 4 October 2007

I eventually found "The Crimson Permanent Assurance" on YouTube. The pirates hoist a flag over their vessel; the flag is shown two times (here is a screen capture of the flag ), first when they leave London and then when they leave a place looking like New York.

The videos are here: Part 1 and Part 2

Background information can be foundhere on Wikipedia.
