Black Flags

This tribe intends to plant the flag of victory in the heart of Poptropolis – and we suspect they’ll stop at nothing to do it!

official tribe colors: black & white

Common room

Emerging from a hole in the ground, the first thing you hear is the crash of thunder and the pattering of rainfall. Beside you, there’s a shimmering golden statue of a mermaid admiring a pearl in her hands.

As you continue moving, your vision turns black for just a second as another round of rain begins. You’re breathing hard, but soon you see a cannon and start to have some fun firing from it.

Dozens of bullets later – but luckily, no casualties – you decide to keep exploring. To the left side of second floor, there’s a bird skeleton in a cage, and you’re surprised to find it still able to caw when you give it a little prod.

Moving up to the third floor, there are still lots of gold pieces laying around – wow, this tribe sure has a lot of loot. On the left, some wooden planks have been fashioned into a staircase that leads to a spinning captain’s wheel.

Going up even higher, you find the crow’s nest of the ship – and tied to a stick, waving gloriously in the wind and dark sky, is the eponymous Black Flag. Arrrr!

Yo ho, a pirate’s life for me!

Check out this Black Flags concept art, which includes an early (rejected) sketch tweeted by Poptropica, plus the eponymous flag at the digging-up of the 2013 Poptropolis Games from the PHB’s Daily Pop sneak peek archive. Also, here’s the common room cannon in action!

    As a Black Flag, I am proud to stand at the mast of that pirate ship and watch the titular flag wave in the gale force winds as thunder echoes in the common room.

    If you’re a Black Flag, too, I nod in approval. 😉

    Gentle Spinner, Strange Cat, please drop the argument. I am unsure about which tribe would win, it could be Pathfinders, Nanobots, Seraphim, Flying Squid, Wildfire, Yellowjackets, Nightcrawlers, or Black Flags. The answer is unknown until Poptropolis comes again. We all have different opinions about different tribes, but that doesn’t mean you can argue about which is better all day.

    It’s us, In the dark and stormy night,
    the other tribes struggle to find light,
    but only we can take,
    take the storms of the night.
    We, Yes us the black flags, black flags.
    We are the tribe of survival.

    We are the black flags,
    We live on storms,
    We are the black flags,
    We shoot cannonballs
    We Are as black as midnight
    We can darken all the light,
    We black flags
    We black flags
    Are the greatest tribe of all.

      • Strange Cat,Weirdo says:

        This so much. Don’t do it people. It’s agitating,aggravating and irritating. Once you start,you cannot stop. If you do it,then you’re…er….a pillow-sucking wet doody-head! Okay? So strap your mouth with duct tape and don’t say anything. Okay,I think I conveyed my message. I’m outta here.

        NANOBOTS FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Lucky Storm who wants to be a mermaid says:

    My favorite thing about black flags is the mermaid statue. Oh yeah, and the fact that its a pirate ship. Now if you’ll excuse me i’m off the the library.

  9. Friendly Lion says:

    Dear Tribes,

    Please forgive my comrade, Gentle Spinner of the Pathfinders for the rude comments. I know that pathfinders is 1 of the tribes with the least members. but I want to highlight something else.
    The creators only created tribes for fun, but i think we got the wrong idea by making fun of other tribes. In my honest opinion, they should delete the tribes and give poptropolis a similar but diffrent plot. (like poptropicans against invaders or something, just saying. I think that’s a weak plot too.). *salutes poptropicans with no tribe* I’ve been to all the tribes’ common rooms and they’re all as nice.I stand beside all poptropicans fighting for peace and are against tribal war.

    Yours truly,
    Friendly Lion of the pathfinders, flying squid, wildfire, seraphim, yellowjackets, black flags, nightcrawlers and nanobots.

    p.s. Thanks for reading it. I’m honestly a neutralist, so the order of the tribes is just by coincidence.

  10. Poplover says:

    Ummm…. I honestly love all tribes( my best friends are in seraphim and nightcrawlers), but I really do think black flags is the best( It’s my tribe, anyway. I’m showing team spirit!) Don’t kill each other over the best tribe you guys. Just support yours.

  11. jashan (or u cud call me adventuretimesmarceline) says:

    The Black Flags Anthem:

    We wear our patches over our eyes and stay pirates that are strong.
    This is the Black Flags Song… And its not too terribly long!! Black Flags FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Strange Monster (And conscious) says:

    Black flags are honestly the best. GO. BLACK. FLAGS. ALL. OTHERS. BOW. BEFORE. US.
    (please excuse my friend strange monster. isn’t she a bit strange?)
    Uh…you know I’m right here?
    (well, yeah, obviously, but-)
    and that you’re just another form of me, right? my conscious or something?
    (yeah, yeah, of couse I know that, I just thought-)
    ANYWAY! Black flags are the best.
    (again, please excuse-)
    oh, shut up for once. If you’re me, then you will agree that Black Flags rule, its just logic.
    (oh, fine. ALL HAIL THE BLACK FLAGS!)

  17. Arrow says:

    I only joined Black Flags because of the band. And out song should be No Values or .
    You Bet We’ve Got Something Personal Against You, but sadly there is a minor bad word in the second song. And I really dont care about who is the best tribe, if we all have fun and that boring crap.
    Add me?
    In game name-Little Kid

  18. Francis Goldenlion says:

    I’m a pathfinder, but tbh I think it doesn’t matter what your tribe is. We’re all friends here. As @SkylarBrookes said, we should not be dissing each other’s tribes. so leave it alone. No, Pathfinders aren’t the best tribe, But neither are black flags! so leave it alone, k? Btw I’m Lions4580, feel free to friend me. you don’t have to, though, I’ll be ok with that.
