Identifying Gang Colors

Gangs and gang members, along with types of clothing and tattoos, have traditionally worn colors as a means of identifying themselves and the gang with which they are affiliated.  Many non-gang members, who innocently wore a gangs colors in the wrong place at the wrong time have been assaulted and even killed.

The following information is intended to show colors that may be used by gangs to identify themselves.  These colors may be seen in the clothing worn by the gang members, in their flags, (bandannas) or in their graffiti.  Due to the trends of today's gangs to change identifiers that used to be traditional, these colors may not be exact .

This list is not all inclusive.  There are many more gangs, spread throughout the United States, that may or may not claim affiliation with a "nation." 

If you are aware of a well known gang not listed below, send the gang name, their colors and affiliation, if any, to me via Email.

Please note that colors are not a positive identifier of gang affiliation.  Colors are but one of the combination of identifiers used by law enforcement and others to identify gang members. 

The two most widely known gang colors are red, worn by the Bloods, and blue, worn by the Crips.

The Sureņos (Sur 13, Sur) and the Norteņos (Norte 14, Norte) are not gangs.  They are  Hispanic gangs in Northern and Southern gangs California who united as Northerners and Southerners.
