English term or phrase: bottom rocker
All outlaw motorcycle gangs can be identified from their official uniform referred to as their “colors” or “patch.”
“Colors” refer to the gang’s official emblem, which is worn on the back of their jackets. They include the gang name on the top rocker; the gang emblem in the center, with the letters “MC”; and the location of the gang on the bottom rocker. A gang’s “colors” are considered sacred and can only be worn by full members. A person going through an initiation period may only wear the ***bottom rocker*** indicating the territory of control in which the gang operates and the letters “MC.”
