Thin Blue Line

Thin Blue Line

With the origins of the term dating back to the Crimean War, the “Thin Blue Line” has become a term and symbol that millions recognize as relating or affiliating with law enforcement. You have heard the term used on the news, television shows and movies and could deduct that it is a statement of solidarity and kinship. The symbol is as bold as it is symbolically simple with a blue band flanked by two black bands. The blue band represents the role of law enforcement as the center piece of maintaining societal order bonding as well as separating the worlds of good and evil.

The next time you see “Thin Blue Line” think about the role law enforcement plays in our society and the bravery that is displayed to achieve social order.
