You tease, you flirt
And you shine all the buttons on your green shirt

Broadening the definition[edit]

I've added black berets and the IRA. Perhaps sashes should be included as well: I wonder if we should we count organizations like the Orange Institution as uniformed political movements? Their ceremonial costume is certainly a uniform. and Orange_Institution#Political_links presents plenty of evidence for their having political goals. -- The Anome (talk) 11:26, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Q- Would the black and white checkered PLO headscarf fall into this category? M-Henry (talk) 17:46, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

As a subcategory, would it be appropriate to add any information about the Black Bloc, or Autonomes? EdelweissPirate (talk) 01:57, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

the Chinese Blue Shirt Society, a secret clique within the Kuomintang[edit]

How could they be "secret" if they walked around in a uniform that betrayed their affiliation? Luke (talk) 15:43, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
