Have large amounts of money and pirates in the flag since fame goes up by puzzling.

I dont have my own flag but I've been around a lot and can tell you what makes them successful - aka owning a lot of islands and being able to cade:

-Poe
-Ambition
-Connections/friends
-Support
-Time - hours that multiple people can devote to flag goals

And what makes them fail:
-Maturity/Immaturity (too much of either)
-Ambition that dies in a month (thats what I have)
-Discussing things that make others unhappy (such as high taxes)

However, you can become eminent and illustrious without islands which just requires a ton of puzzling pirates! Theres a ton more to the list but those are the ones that come to mind :)

You get flag fame by running boats a lot.

You get lots of blockades by having people with a large amount of PoE being willing to pipe it into the flag, for whatever reason.

You ruin either arrangement by allowing people who enjoy drama, and/or don't bring much to the team, into the group, especially if you let them in a leadership role.

You need a core group of at least 5 people who will be consistently active and willing to do stuff, and then enough 'ordinary' members that the crew/flag seems active so you can hold onto recruits. Fame is just about running lots of voyages so do that!
