The Swarm is a flag on the Emerald Ocean. It was founded by Queenbeez on the Hunter Ocean on 3 April 2009. As of January 2014, it holds a blockading record of 14 victories and 6 defeats.


A few days after the creation of Queen's Realm. Queenbeez decided to create her own flag, upon the suggestion of her Senior Officer Slowdog. They named it The Swarm, after its monarch, the bee.


Public statement

With the hot rum running in our veins, we will serve you steel for tea!

Our flag is a coalition of crews who seek to mutually support each other and our members in a wide variety of endeavors; we participate in pillaging; trade and shopkeeping; Atlantis, Haunted Seas and CI; flotilla attack; and event and island blocade. We offer a number of benefits to member crews including support and training and look to make the experience of every pirate a fun and rewarding one.

Our flag is very big on respect. We expect all flaggies to respect each other and those outside the crew who job for us. If there are any issues concerning any flag member, we ask that it is discussed with the appropriate captain, rather than over FO chat. And talking of flag chat, we LUV to chat, so if you join our flag it is rarely quiet.
