Wynn is an 18th century French pirate who was known for raiding Spanish and English ships that sailed in the Caribbean Sea. He is also famous for being among the first pirates to use the Jolly Roger design. According to eye-witness accounts, Wynn’s design had two crossed bones with a skull and an hour glass beneath them on a black background. The hour glass meant that time was running out for any ship he and his crew attacked.
