Q:

What do the five points of the "Blood" gang star represent?

A:

The five-pointed star is a gang symbol used by the Bloods, as well as the five-pointed crown, and it is meant to show their affiliation with the People Nation. Each point on the star represents a different meaning, running clockwise from the top: love, truth, peace, freedom and justice.

Originally known as the Piru Street Boys in South Central Los Angeles, the Bloods gang was formed after they revolted against the Crips gang in 1972. In 1993, the United Blood Nation was formed on the East Coast. Although the majority of the Bloods are identified by the color red, they commonly do not wear their colors or symbols while committing crimes.
