New Zealand's most notorious gang; the Mongrel Mob

The Mongrel Mob is an organized street gang based in New Zealand that has a network of more than thirty chapters throughout the country. By the 1970s the Mongrels were also known as the Mongrel Mob, and the gang had expanded to include numerous Māori.

Mongrel Mob colours are predominantly red and black. The patches usually feature a swastika and a British Bulldog wearing a German Stahlhelm.
There were 934 members in prison in April 2013, making up more than a tenth of all New Zealand prisoners. In January it was reported the Mongrel Mob was on a collision course with Australian outlaw bikie clubs after invading the Northern Territory in Darwin.

Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast all now have established Mongrel Mob chapters.
