A biker patch or “colour” is often sewn with a vest made of leather or denim to denote the biker’s group, organization or gang. These sacred patches are worn with honor and might contain secret symbols that say things about the audience or perhaps the individual using it.
You can find basically 3 kinds of custom design patches which can be found in one, a couple of pieces. Normally the one-piece patch symbolizes a motorcycle organization including Harley Owners Group (H.O.G) and Honda Riders Club. Two-piece patches are generally utilized by riding clubs or may symbolize a motorcycle club awaiting the transition to become full three-piece outlaw club. The three-piece patches symbolize an outlaw motorcycle gang.
Biker patches basically have three parts; the top rocker, the bottom rocker, and also the group or gang emblem in between. Both crescent shaped rockers display the name from the club on top as well as the place or region of your group at the base. Sometimes the saying M.C. is positioned next to the emblem or rocker to keep in mind that it is a Motorcycle Club.

This gave birth to normally the one Percenters or Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs. These clubs cut their one piece patches into three to distinguish themselves from the rest des1gn the law-abiding groups. A diamond shaped 1% patch can be worn together with the three piece patch. To show that they are the outlawed 1%.
