(NOTE: The following information is for contextual purposes only). For many, the Thin Blue Line Flag is a symbol of solidarity and a tribute to fallen officers. For many others, the flag is a symbol of division that supports the "us" versus "them" mentality for those in law enforcement. In recent years, the Thin Blue Line flag has flown alongside confederate and swastika flags by neo-Nazis and KKK members at events such as the August 11-12, 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, VA, and most recently at the January 6, 2021 insurrection by white supremacists at the nation's capitol. It's also often seen at counter-protest rallies across the country in support of the police, when communities protest the murder of numerous unarmed Black persons by law enforcement officers. To numerous members of Black and Brown communities, the Thin Blue Line flag, much like the swastika for the Jewish community, represents violent intolerance.
