#2 Latin Kings - They are the best organized latin gang in the world. Latin Kings street gang was formed in Chicago in the 1940s. At first members were mostly Puerto Rican. But today gang is dominated by Mexicans. Although they aren’t as violent as many of the other gangs they do engage in a fair share of illegal money making activities including contract killings.
Shake and Signify – The two Latin Kings in the background show the gang handshake, which mimics the points of a crown. The one in the foreground is “signifying.” Signifying is a sign of recognition. It says, “I belong to the Latin Kings.” When strangers met on a street, they would signify as a way of telling friend from foe.
The crown has five points because the Latin Kings are an affiliate of the People Nation gang, which is represented by the number 5. Latin Kings have a huge presence both in and out of prison, and they're roots go back to the 1940's
