Blue Knights NC XVI was formed on August 10th, 2009. The members decided to design a new front patch that would reflect the ideals upon which law enforcement is based.
* The blue border represents what a law enforcement officer is, the thin blue line standing between right and wrong.
* The gray background represents the decisions officers must make in a less than perfect, black and white world.
* The dragon or serpent represents the evil (crime) that law enforcement fights and protects us all from.
* The Blue Knight facing evil head on, stands behind his shield, continuously fighting against and protecting us all from evil.
* We do this not for ourselves, but so others may live safely.
