The Blue Angels Motorcycle Club (BAMC) is a one-percenter motorcycle club that was formed by Allan Morrison and Billy Gordon in the Maryhill area of Glasgow, Scotland in 1963. They claim to be the oldest 1% motorcycle club in Europe . [1] They claim that "Blue" stands for Bastards, Lunatics, Undesireables and Eccentrics but this almost certainly a backronym and the name more simply originates from the colour of the Saltire.[2] The Blue Angels Are the only 1% motorcycle club in Scotland.

The Blue Angels have six chapters throughout Scotland Glasgow, West Coast, South East, Aberdeen, Fife and Edinburgh; and in Leeds, Kirklees, South Lakes and York, England. Seven in Belgium and two in Spain. The club's insignia consists of a skull wearing a German Army helmet (sometimes with a swastika or a national flag on the side) and golden wings coming out from the side. John McDermott designed the patches
