A group of people, also known as a drill team or dance team, who add visual flair to a marching band. They are most often associated with flags, which they often march with and twirl. However, many groups also dance, and some schools' colorguards twirl other interesting objects such as rifles, chain flags, etc.
These groups also often wear fairly skintight or showy uniforms (but still in many cases modest compared to the cheerleaders), and they may wear a lot of makeup and glitter so that their faces are not washed out under the lights on a football field. These performers enhance the band's music with their routines and make halftime shows much more interesting.
1) -"hey, you're wearing a skirt, are you a cheerleader?"
-"No, I'm on the colorguard and it freakin' rocks!"
2) The colorguard and band performed at the halftime show.
3) -"Those band kids are such dorks!"
-"Better watch what you say, man. That girl over there is in colorguard and she'll kick your ass if she hears you diss her friends."
