We have a bunch of different thin lines flag. Red is firefighters, gold is emergency dispatchers.
For example, it’s called the “Thin Blue Line”. It’s supposed to represent Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) and flying a TBL American flag is showing support for the LEOs of the United States. Thin Blue Line is also in the sense that LEOs are the thin line between innocent people and criminals.
Another example as “The Thin Red Line of Courage” represents the last ounce of courage firefighters find deep in their blood to conquer their darkest fears in order to save and protect life and property. For firefighters, their friends, and family, The Thin Red Line Flag is full of meaning.
I did a quick Google search and found a list of thin lines: Thin line. Though it is may not the complete list. Still, quoted here just in case the post gets deleted:
The thin lines flag
