The origins of the term "Jolly Roger" are unclear.

One theory is that it comes from the French term "jolie rouge" (red beauty, or beautiful/lovely red) which the English corrupted to "Jolly Roger".  This may be likely as there were a series of "red flags" that were feared as much, or more than "black flags".  As red symbolized blood.  No matter how much seamen dreaded the black pirate standard, all prayed they never encounterd the Jolie Rouge.  This red flag boldly declared the pirates' intentions, that no life would be spared, (no quarter given, no mercy).  It's use may be seen as an early form of psychological warfare.
