a bandana is a square piece of cloth(sometimes called a bandeezie by hardcore bandana wearers), usually with designs on it, that comes in a wide range of colours(usually black or navy blue). It was first worn by the cowboys to keep the dust out of thier faces, now emos, gangsters, and pretty much everyone else wears them. they were worn as head bands before, now they are worn almost like a hat, around the bottom half of the face, on the forhead, wrist, or pretty much anywhere else it will fit. teachers and parents think its a sign of a gang.

Different colors can have different gang associations. If a girl is wearing a bandana on her wrists, it can mean her BF, lover, or homie is in prison.

A head accessory. Mark of the hipster and cool cat. Most commonly worn as a thin strip with the knot on top of the head or with the knot behind the hair.
Sierra: Wow, Wendy has a wicked bandana! Hipsters are really cool. But not the older ones, like, 40. No.

Fiona: Yeah, Cat the Cool Cat also has a cool bandana. Pretty swindy-dink.

A bandana is a square shaped piece of cloth that is mainly worn to indicate that you are in a particular gang. So if you are in aren't in a gang, I would highly recommend not wearing one.
Gangmember (blood): Hey man, he's wearin' a red bandana! Hey boy, are you a blood?

Guy wearing bandana: What are you talking about man, I just thought it looked cool.

Gangmember (blood): He's false flagin', get em!

*Gangmembers beat down the guy wearing the bandana.*
