History of the Flag
It was founded on August 29, 2005 by Muttons and the Ramen Noodles. The Black Sheep began when the Ramen Noodles left Something Powerful shortly before that flag's collapse. In September, 2005, Muttons left the flag. Tamitee was unanimously voted in as the new monarch.
The expression 'black sheep' traditionally refers to a member of a family or group who is a disgrace or embarrassment. Historically the term 'black sheep' referred to the black, un-dyeable and therefore undesirable fleece of rare black sheep. Hence, black sheep were considered a genetic mishap and less valuable than their fellow white sheep.
We however, are the celebrated Black Sheep of Cobalt Ocean. Far from being outcasts, we are known for our exceptional prowess pillaging the seas of Cobalt and ascribe the moniker, at least in part, to our taking of Kraken's blood on our pillages. If ye are looking to earn good poe and belong to a flag that cares for all, ye come to the right place.
