Custom-made Pirate Flag

Pirate flag (blog)-1140999

A flag for the paraw is now on its way to Palawan, having been made in a sewing shop on a military camp in Afganistan.

A fews weeks ago, Gener took some guests on his Jungle Expedition to visit the paraw construction site. Nik, a Canadian guest working in Kabul, offered to have a pirate flag stitched to Gener’s design by skilled workers on Camp Alamo.

Gener’s design includes a moro kris  and kampilan, traditional swords used by tribal people (and pirates of bygone years) in the southern Philippines.

Of course, Gener is not really a pirate, the flag is just for fun!

    Hope you’ll enjoy it. Can wait to see it on the boat’s mast. Cheers!

  2. Greetings! I was thrilled to come across your blog. I lived in Palawan from 2011 to 2012 and miss it already. I had to comment since I found it hilarious that the pirate flag was being sewn in Kabul, Afghanistan. Lol.

    Incidentally, where in Palawan is the boat being built? When I lived there, I stayed in Bancao-Bancao. My second residence was 300 meters north of Jacana.

    I also maintained a blog about my Palawan adventures. It’s also hosted by WordPress: http://retirednoway.wordpress.com.

    Good luck with the boat. I’m following your blog now!
