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. "Blue" stands for Bastards, Lunatics, Undesireables and Eccentrics but the name also came from other sources; blue is the main colour of the Scotland flag. The Blue Angels are one of the largest motorcycle clubs in the United Kingdom, only falling behind the Outlaws, Hells Angels and Satans Slaves.
The Blue Angels have four chapters throughout Scotland and in Leeds. 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 McDermot designed the patches and the name Blue Angels came from a boat they saw in Loch Lomond in 1963.
