The first time I ever saw these tags I thought it was a gang of sorts. But then I learned that it was a soccer fan club, which being in Egypt, just made infinitely more sense. Each city has it’s own fan club that tags its team-specific graffiti around the city. I’ve seen it now in Alexandria, Mansoura, and Port Said. Pictures of those forthcoming.

"I am behind you, wherever you go" 
The hardcore soccer fans of Mansoura, noting their loyalty. You can see “UWK,” short for “Ultra White Knights” marked up all over the city in random places, usually in ways not worth taking shots of, but its presence is pretty ubiquitous. It’s important to note that graffiti didn’t just start with the revolution, but was somewhat present in the background, often in the form of soccer enthusiasm, long before. The political graffiti following the revolution just brought far more attention to it and got more people involved.
