It isn't just patches. It is, as far as can be determined, any

Such as someone with a Big Red Machine t-shirt.

Whether someone wearing such a shirt is a club member, or liable to

Dunno why anyone should get their nickers in a knot over how an innocent
motorcyclist could be mistaken for a gang member.
A simple check of the carpark would determine their credentials...are they

but those small logos are not 'colours', and they are banning 'colours'
aren't they? [1]
