Q:

What is the GD gang six-point star?

A:

The notorious GD gang, short for Gangster Disciples, uses the six-point star as its primary method of identification in honor and remembrance of David Barksdale, the man who founded the gang. The six-point star that represents the Gangster Disciples mirrors the Star of David. Its six points represent the virtues of love, life, loyalty, wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

 

In addition to the six-point star, the Gangster Disciples have several other symbols as well, including a pair of pitchforks, a heart with wings, an upside-down shepherd cane, an upside-down pyramid and an upside-down cross. In keeping with tradition, the symbols used by GD come in either blue or black, which are signature colors of the GD. The GD originated in Chicago, and has active members in more than half of the United States.
