Black Sails S04E10 (XXXVIII)

Non sibi sed aliis (Not for ourselves, but for others)

The motto on the colonial seal of the State of Georgia (USA) can be seen on the gate of the Savannah plantation where Flint and Thomas Hamilton are finally reunited. It has a deep meaning: Flint has fought all those years not for himself, but for revenge, anger and rage, the thing that wants “to see the world burn”; he has decided to quit his war not for saving himself but for Thomas, clinging to the hope he could be still alive as Silver said he would.
