The phrase Thin Blue Line represents the idea that law enforcement (associated with blue uniforms) acts as the barrier (or "line") between the community they protect and lawlessness. In the 2010s, the Thin Blue Line has also been used to refer to a black flag with a blue line running horizontally across the middle. A common variation of this flag depicts a black and white American flag with a blue stripe across the middle. By extension, the phrase Thin Blue Line can refer to members of law enforcement themselves and represent the Thin Blue Line flag. These flags have become controversial due to their use by white supremacists and the controversial Blue Lives Matter movement.
