Background/History

This symbol is one of the older, more traditional skinhead symbols. Both neo-Nazi and anti-racist skinheads use the symbol to symbolize the plight of the working class. They also have used it as a threatening message to one another. SHARPs (SkinHeads Against Racial Prejudice) have distributed literature containing the symbol in order to express the difficulties they confront when they are confused with neo-Nazi skinheads. In some cases, when used as a tattoo, it can also signify that an individual has either served time in prison or committed a murder.
