A section of the marching band that spins/tosses a variety of different "weapons" including sabers, rifles, flags, and air blades. Generally gets made fun of by members of the winds and drum line. Guard members are the only ones who can describe how it feels to toss high into the air and catch perfectly, while staying in step and looking pretty. Because really, that's the only point of the guard; to look good.
Angry band member: "I hate color guard. They're always in the way, and they have it so easy. Everyone knows they only join because they suck at their instrument and aren't good enough to be on the cheer squad or dance team."

Guard member: "Hello, we have to run around you guys the entire parade, have practices twice as long as yours and three times as often. I play first chair on sax along with french horn and clarinet, AND I'm on the varsity cheerleading and dance teams. Piss off."

1. a semi-cult which no one outside of it understands, because they cannot handle the greatness of it

2. a group of girls, and occasionally a gay guy, who make marching band far more interesting by dancing and twirling flags, sabres, rifles, batons, and sometimes the odd prop or two
Person 1: I don't like marching band shows. They're so boring.

Person 2: No they're not! Look at the shiny flags and weapons.

1. A true test of physical strength and ability.
2. The only place where you can legally flip it, whip it, and strip it!

A group of people dedicated to representing thier school the best way possible by spinning flags, rifle, sabers and other equipment. This group marches with a marching band and compliments the music they play through the use of color, body movement, and equipment.
Everyone in the COLOR GUARD did a beautiful toss just as the cymbals crashed.

Life.
Colorguard means spending every waking hour trying to improve each toss, becoming more emotional, hearing your guard instructor yell at you at the top of his lungs"Focus!Detail!Expression!Technique!"It about loving what you do, with the people you people you love-your guard family, a sisterhood(or family-depending of weather there is a guard boy) it's being everything you want to be in that moment-when your on the floor. It's our life, it's our love, it's our family, it's us......

A group of highly talented teenage girls. They must be able to dance, spin various pieces of equipment, hold their head up and portray emotion, and march in time, and pretend that its not negative 100 degress outside. It is the colorguard's job to bring life to a piece of music. They must be able to use their bodies, along with their equipment, to give the music a personality. Contrary to popular belief, they are not the rejects of the Cheerleader, the dance team, ext. Any guard girl could stand in front of a crowd and scream "Go Team Go!" however I really doubt a cheerleader could pick up a rifle, throw a quad, and catch it, all while holding your head high and portraying the emotion of the show. Many members of the band/drumline like to blame the colorguard when the band/drumline does bad, however, it is usually not their fault. I say usually because every group, band, colorguard, && drumline, will have a bad show sometime. Putting that aside though, it is the colorguard's ability to come back from a bad show and be 10X fiercer then last week that makes them so freakin' ah-mazing. Never try to understand a conversation between guard girls. Being in a colorguard mean developing the best friendships ever and therefore, many inside jokes that you will never understand. In conclusion, colorguard is ah-mazing && anyone who gets on here and says they aren't should just go ahead and go have sexual intercourse with themselves, mkay? No, really, just do it!
Person 1: Dude, the Colorguard is Hott!
Person 2: I know right!
Colorguard is ah-mazing, mkay?
