Question: What is the significance of the lapel pin worn by detectives on Blue Bloods?


Answer: It is the lapel pin worn by members of the NYPD Honor Legion.


But why would the mayor wear one?

The lapel pin is on Danny but not Biaz, why? Also, Baker, Sid, Frank &Garrett wear one. Significance? Are they all the same?

Question: Why why does Danny always yell, "hey!" When he's is a half a block from the perpetrators which gives the perpetrators 1/2 block head start running from Danny. Why doesn't he wait until he's close to him and he wouldn't have to chase him so far?


Answer: It's a common cop show plot device. If the police on the show always acted in the most logical way (i.e. not alerting a suspect to their presence) the show wouldn't have the opportunity for an exciting foot chase.

Question: What is the green and white striped American looking flag in the commissioner's office?


Answer: It's the New York Police Department flag, created in 1919. The stripes represent the 5 boroughs and the stars the different towns that made up New York (including New York City itself).


What about the other flag that is not the U.S. flag?

Please be more specific. Are you talking about the New York City flag?


It is the Iowa State flag. At least in the episode from 1/22/21.

It wouldn't be the Iowa State flag. Plus the Iowa State flag is blue, white, and red. The flag I think they're talking about is blue, white, and orange.


Power of the Press - S5-E8

Question: What pin does Frank remove at the end?


Answer: NYPD police pin.


Show generally

Question: I am trying to remember the episode that ended with Frank and Jaime fishing on the pier. A police officer says to Frank it's no smoking before he realises he's talking to the commissioner. I didn't get at the time why Frank seems so blase about the law and want to re watch to see if its any clearer to me now but can't remember the season or even what the rest of the episode was about.


Answer: It's in S2xE1 "Mercy" at the end of the episode.

Blackout - S9-E4

Frank Reagan: And I don't have a Teflon suit. Everything gets to me. Every time one of ours is hurt, or jammed up, or he's in over his head, it gets to me. I just don't show it, 'cause I can't show it, 'cause nobody wants, or needs, a sensitive police commissioner.
Sid Gormley: OK.
Frank Reagan: So screw you!
Sid Gormley: Yes, sir. That an order, too?
Frank Reagan: Yeah, that's an order.
Sid Gormley: Screw me. I'm on it, boss.
