Background/History

This is the name of a specific neo-Nazi skinhead organization. The many local Hammerskin chapters in the U.S. and abroad are united by an ideology that focuses on white pride and white power music. Crossed hammers are the basic component in the groupís symbol, which is adapted and localized for each chapter. The hammers are often placed on a background that represents the area where the chapter is located, such as a national flag. HFFH stands for "Hammerskins forever, forever Hammerskins."
