What Do the “Blood” Gang Star’s Five Points Stand For?

The five-pointed star and five-pointed crown are gang symbols that the Bloods employ to signify their ties to the People Nation. Running clockwise from the top, each point on the star stands for a different concept: love, truth, peace, freedom, and justice.

The Bloods gang, formerly known as the Piru Street Boys in South Central Los Angeles, was established following their uprising against the Crips gang in 1972. On the East Coast, the United Blood Nation was established in 1993. The bulk of Bloods are distinguished by the colour red, but they frequently forego wearing these markings when committing crimes.
