An Emblem is a large image embossed or sewn into a ship's sails to identify its alliance or ownership.
In Pirates Online, players can purchase various emblems (available in a black or white version) to customize their ship. It does NOT affect ship performance in any way, only serving to uniquely identify a player's ship.
Emblems can be purchased at any shipwright. Any emblem is 5,000 gold.
The ship model and class will determine the number and size of the emblem on the main sails.

In early Beta (a private version of the game tested by exclusive pirates before the game was actually released to the public), all Pirate Ships had a Skull with a red hat on their sails. Since there was no Ship Customization at the time, there was no possible way to change or remove it. However, the emblem was removed before October 2007, the month of the game's release.
The sight of the Royal Navy's powerful fleet ships is made even more regal by the emblem emblazed across the massive Ships of the Line and their Elite escorts.
East India Trading Company
Treasure Fleet EmblemEITC's flagships and escorts of the Treasure Fleets also bear their own bold seal. This intimidating crest announces that "Nothing can harm us when God leads us."
All Normal EITC ships that are not part of Treasure Fleets don the normal EITC Emblem on their sails.
Bounty Hunter Emblems
The various vessels that troll these waters in pursuit of the most nefarious Scoundrels of the Sea also sport their own designs. Though they are similar to those pirates can add to their own ships, each is specific to the vessel that bears it.
