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.[1] "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.[2] The Blue Angels are one of the largest motorcycle clubs in the United Kingdom, only falling behind the Outlaws, Hells Angels and Satans Slaves.[2]

The Blue Angels have six chapters throughout Scotland Glasgow, West coast, South east , Aberdeen , Fife and Edinburgh and in Leeds , South lakes and york[2] 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.
