"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." Benjamin Franklin
The top rocker is our club name, Iron Legacy. Our name shows our heritage to our previous club where we established and built the largest independent law abiding motorcycle club up until September 2014 when that club voted to change. The gold edging represents our values and principles that we consider to be priceless and we took our oaths to follow. It stands for the brotherhood who left to form the Iron Legacy MC taking the gold values and principles with them. In 2015 those new leaders of the Iron Order took the last step to throw out all the Original 8 and founding leaders who built that club until the 10 year anniversary. That leadership believed they knew a better way. Their results are in the headlines. The Iron Legacy has no connection or affiliation with the Iron Order in any way. Today the Iron Order is not the club we founded and built.
The square patch with MC in it means we are a Motorcycle Club as opposed to a Riding Club or HOG type organization. We follow the same traditions established by the original motorcycle clubs dating back to the 1950’s and 1960’s.
The bottom rocker has the name of a State or a Nomad designation. The state rocker shows where that brother is from and shows we do not claim any territory or turf. The Nomad rocker is for those who report directly to our International Leadership.
Our center patch is named “The Rider”. He represents all of us. The flames represents hell the Rider is riding out of to re-establish our principles and values by founding the Iron Legacy MC. That hell is the personal pain for every brother who made the decision to follow his solemn oath to keep those values and principles.
The letters HILTH on the tombstone in the hand of the Rider, represents our founding principles of Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty, Truth and Honor that are being carried off by the Rider to be resurrected in the year 2015 also found on the tombstone. It is our oath to these principles that created the continuation of the Legacy so they would never be forlorn by any brother again.
The tombstone itself represents the fact that our original founding principles had been lost and buried. Those principles have been “resurrected” and are now carried forth by the Rider, never to be turned away from again.
Our front patch is the Rider coming out of the grave taking hold of the tombstone representing our values and principles to carry them off on his chopper in order to bring them back to life in the Iron Legacy MC never to be allowed to die again.
