Sorry if this is an a-chow, and sorry not to have more detail: my correspondent from North Carolina says that he sees a particular bumper sticker patch: it's black, with a horizontal blue stripe. He described it as square, maybe seven inches on a side. He didn't say how wide the stripe was, or what hue.

Best guess so far was that it might be a new military campaign ribbon for Afghanistan or Iraq...but that's only a WAG. So...what is it really?

I've seen something similar here. The stickers I see are of a dark blue with a yellow stripe.

Something police-y, I say.

In no particular order,

ebay link 1

ebay link 2

ebay link 3

ebay link 4

(Here's a version of that page from last summer.)

Etc.

Google for "thin blue line" and "sticker" and you get other variations.

Perhaps Dark Blue or moonlight or Atlanta Jake or Paradiddle, all of whom I believe are in law enforcement or emergency services of some sort, could comment on this angle.

The dark blue stickers with a yellow stripe are for the Human Rights Campaign.

Whoops, you're right. I am visually impaired, so it looks like a single stripe to me. [Smile]
