Description

The White Knights for Justice are a society who represents victims of injustice. They were founded in 1992 and are based in the Gold Coast suburb of Southport, Queensland, and were founded by a member of the Special Air Services Regiment (SAS), and the White Knights follow similar disciplines. It is a secret society with no acknowledged political or religious affiliations. Their logo features a medieval knight in armour on a horse. The knight carries a shield and banner, both of which have a cross on it. According to their website the name ‘White’ (purity) ‘Knights’ (loyalty, bravery and honesty) was chosen due to its association with fighting tyranny and doing good in the community.
