"The Crimson Permanent Assurance" is a short film (16
mn) used as the first chapter (indeed a pre-movie short film of its
own) of "Monty Python's The Meaning of Life", the last of the Monty
Python films (1983, directed by Terry Gilliam)

I eventually found "The Crimson
Permanent Assurance" on YouTube. The pirates hoist a flag over their
vessel; the flag is shown two times (here is a screen capture of the flag
), first when they leave London and then when they leave a place looking like New York.
The videos are here: Part 1 and Part 2
Background information can be foundhere on Wikipedia.
