Discover our magnificent collection of red bandanas: the most emblematic and widespread color of bandanas, and sublimate your outfit.
Red Bandana Meaning
Red is an emblematic color. It is a warm color that is one of the most popular colors in the world.
It is often associated and synonymous with passion, love and warmth. It is a very powerful color.
It can also in some cases be the symbol of danger, revolt or blood.
1) Symbol of belonging: Gang of Bloods
Among the many uses that the red bandana can have, one of the most famous is to be used as a symbol of gang membership.
This use comes mainly from the United States and in particular from one of their most famous gang: the Bloods.
The Bloods are very well known and widespread throughout the territory and are thus very easily recognizable by their systematic use of a red bandana.
They are to be contrasted with their biggest rival: the Crips, who are recognizable by the use of blue bandanas.
So if you are looking for a gansta look, the red bandana can be a very good option, but it is far from being its only utility and meaning.
2) Cowboy Bandana
The red bandana was also made very famous and popular through many westerns, in which the main character was often depicted with a red bandana around his neck.
And it's no coincidence, the bandana (kerchief) was indeed a very popular multifunctional accessory for cowboys in the Far West.
Among other things, it allowed to protect oneself from the sun and dust, but also to cover one's face so as not to be recognized.
If you are looking for a cowboy look, the red bandana is a great solution.
3) Man in the red bandana
The name of the red bandana is also often associated with "Men in the red bandana".
This man is Welles Crowther, a volunteer firefighter who died heroically on September 11, 2001 after saving the lives of 18 people.
He was known to often wear a red bandana from a young age.
He used a bandana to cover his face and protect himself from the smoke heroically during September 11th.
A documentary as well as a book has been made in his honor.
The hanky-code corresponds to a color code widely used in the 70s and 80s by the gay community to make its preferences known.
