A slang word originating from Shakespeare's use of the word "swaggering" in "A Midsummer Night's Dream." It is not used in the same manner, but that's the first time it appears in the English language.

It was not created by the Scottish, by men in the United States to express their sexuality, by Jay Z (lol yes, people actually say this stuff), the unintelligent, by teenagers, or younger children. The word "swagger" was made by Scandanavians as early as the 1530s, but Shakespeare's use of the word gave it a new meaning (as early as 1590).

Many hate this word because they believe that black rappers made it, and so many people use it so often. It compels them to get on the internet with the sole purpose of bashing others for using the word.

It's very sad how so many people who insult others for using this word don't understand the word's origin, nor the basics of any language... As time passes, languages evolve.

If you think I'm wrong, use the internet to learn something. Do your own research, don't take my word for it.

swaggering accent sharply twanged off, gives manhood Twelfth Night: III, iv

Keeps wassail, and the swaggering up-spring reels; Hamlet: I, iv

An acronym for Secretly We Are Gay because the word swag is the stupidest thing to be created by humans.
Group: SWAG!!
Guy: So you're all gay?
Group: NO!
Guy: Well obviously you are because you just said "Secretly We Are Gay" even though it's not a secret anymore.

Having "swag" means to look, act, and think like a total fucking retard. Giving ones self more confidence.
That kid says he has Swag, he doesn't know it makes him sound like a total fucking idiot.

A canvas bedroll commonly used in Australia. Consists of a thin mattress inside a canvas covering, may contain poles to keep the roof raised like a small tent, insect mesh to keep bugs out and other creature comforts. Rolls up for compact storage afterwards. Most swags are about 2 ft (60cm) wide and about 1 ft (30cm) thick once rolled up.
1)Got sick of things in the city, so I chucked my swag on the back of the bike and headed out into the bush for a few weeks. Rolled it out on the top of a hill and watched the beautiful starry sky while I fell asleep. Easy way to forget my problems.

2) Mind if I stay at your place after the party? I bought my swag, I'll just roll it out in oyur lounge room.

Swag: Something people think they can achieve by acting like a d-bag and make themselves think that they're really-really tight. Symptoms include trying to act a lot smoother but end up looking like you don't know what reality is because your mind is cluttered with douche. Swag affects many people, like the African American race, but is much funnier when white people are affected.
Random Douche: "Wassup player?"
Guy: "Uh...your white and you live in the suburbs, remember?"
Random Douche: "Whaa? You crazy! Ahaa! SWAG!"
Guy: "..."
