I know what real barbed wire is and its uses. (Also, razer wire, concertina wire, etc.) I was just curious about the symbolism
, and why people want to wear that image. I see it printed on all kinds of merchandise, so I was wondering what it meant.
For example, everyone knows that the "peace" symbol (broken upside-down cross inside a circle) represents anti-war support. The "fish" symbol means Christian. So, various symbols have popular meanings.
I'm just behind the times and don't know the barbed wire meaning.
