The Latin Kings are known to exhibit in drawings, paintings, and graffiti their reflection and interpretation of the Latin Kings.
The Latin Kings colors are used in much of the material along with symbols such as A.L.K.N. (Almighty Latin King Nation), A.D.R. (Amor Del Rey Love the King), crowns, lion heads, “LK”, bulldogs, Coat of Arms, guns, cars and money.
If another gang is responsible for the death of the Latin King member, an upside down symbol of that gang may appear in the graffiti with the words “Lollypop” as a putdown to that gang. Payback and anniversary dates of slain fellow gang members add to the violence of this group.
