- "You'll take the grandest as your flagship, and who's to argue?"
- ―Jack Sparrow
A flagship is a vessel used by the commanding officer of a group of naval ships, reflecting the custom of its commander, flying a distinguishing flag. Used more loosely, it is the lead ship in a fleet of vessels, typically the first, largest, fastest, most heavily armed, or best known. The HMS Endeavour was the flagship of Lord Cutler Beckett's Armada.
