What does a pirate flag advertise?

A fireman has been forced to either take down a pirate flag he put up for his daughter's themed birthday or pay for "advertising consent" because the flag "breaches regulations controlling advertising." The article I found is not very long, but I want to know what this flag is advertising. Death? Pirates? Click here to see the article

Update: I found another article here. Apparently you are only allowed to fly national flags in the UK, everything else is advertising. I wonder if that kind of abridgment of the freedom of speech would 'fly' here in the U.S.
