Line Colors: Their History and What They Mean

HISTORY

The Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Police, Fire, Armed Forces, Medical Services, Search and Rescue, Security and other Law Enforcement organizations have utilized a Thin Line flag or other Thin Line memorabilia to depict camaraderie and morale. The Thin Blue Line is the most common of the colors and gained its start through a combination of colloquial sayings and media portrayals. There is a significant difference when the line is represented in various colors and in various circles.

Most often the line is depicted on black, sometimes it’s just a solid thin line and on a few occasions a thin line on white. Regardless of how it’s displayed, it is a symbol of pride, honor and support for those that wear it.
