IronCross emblem (the Iron Cross was awarded to soldiers during the Wars of Liberation against Napoleon. ) featured with swastika - was borrowed from soldiers after the war. Wearing this emblems people usually expressed their protest against the government. Howether till nowadays there are doubts about connection this emblem with bikers' political views or it is just another one intention to show that bikers like other people are peaceful and kind citizens.
Bikers commonly use wide range of patches, badges, logos and images on the clothes, which can be related with different events in their life and motorcycle movement. Many of them identify the meaning "brother or enemy".
«1 %» (OnePercent, Onepercenter) patch is refers to the fact that bikers consider themselves apart from the 99 percent of motorcyclists alleged to be represented by the American Motorcycle Association. One of the incidents in 1947 at an event in Hollister, California, in which a number of bikers got out of control, caused an uproar, the AMA reportedly issued a statement that 99% of their members were law-abiding citizens and only 1% were outlaws. From that point, any biker who identified with the outlaw image labeled themselves as a one percenter. To this day, the 1% patch remains an iconic symbol among bikers, even though the AMA has declared this story to be apocryphal. Often «1 %» can be seen as a tattoo.
