BLACK FLAG // SS CONSPIRACY?


BLACK FLAG!

Black Flag, the first hardcore band, tough as shit, DIY grandpas, classic, fuck yeah!
The "four bars" logo was created for the band in 1977 by Raymond Pettibon, Greg Ginn's brother, to represent a stylized waving black flag. It is undoubtedly one of the most easily recognizable band logos in music. It makes a great shirt and tattoo, but what message does it really spread? Is the iconic "four bars" logo a symbol of DIY ethos and hardcore music, a stylized symbol of anarchy or a skewed symbol of the Nazi SS?


To demonstrate the transformation, the four bars are simply reconfigured and skewed in three stages to make an SS symbol:


This video shows evidence of the SS symbol (on helmets and black flags) as originally used by nazi bastards. They bear a striking resemblance to stage two of our transformation.

1:27 shows a small symbol in a helmet.
3:01 is the best example. It shows a black flag with white bars as seen in the second stage.
