"Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men. It is a right that belongs to us by the God of Laws and nature."
The FLAC patch denotes our membership in the Federation of Law-Abiding Clubs. The purple shield is the color of the Praetorian Guards of Rome. The Praetorians protected the Senate and Citizens of Rome. On the shield is the likeness of a Fasces. The Fasces is the center image of rods bound together by leather straps, around an axe. This image also dates back to the Roman Senate. Today you can find images of the Fasces on both sides of the wall behind the chair of the Speaker of the House in the United States Congress and on either side of the chair Abraham Lincoln sits on in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. It represents that each rod is easily broken but when bound together by the same values and mindset they cannot be broken. The axe is the strength in the members to stand against adversity to preserve the union of all membership clubs in the Federation of Law-Abiding Clubs.
