The largest white supremacist prison gang in Tennessee calls itself Aryan Nations. The gang borrowed its title from the older neo-Nazi group of the same name, though the two are separate groups with few connections. The "gang" Aryan Nations is also far larger than the "neo-Nazi" Aryan Nations. The main symbol for this racist prison gang consists of a rounded Celtic Cross image with different symbols in each of the quadrants formed by the circle and the cross. These can include the initials AN, the number 14/88, SS lightning bolts, prison bars, stars from the Confederate flag, swastikas, and other symbols. Gang members may also use other symbols, such as the numeric symbol 114 (substituting letters for numbers, 114 equates to A and N, or Aryan Nations).
