Do you retards even read back what you write? You two are truly stupid. You sound like 5 year olds arguing, although a 5 year old has a much better handle on the english language. using words like "Spenca" and phrases like "putting in work" you low lifes have never worked a day in your lives, you live your lives in fear of the world, you are afraid of the real world so you try and became lords of your little shthole street in El Monte. Get a life losers.

So if Flores translates to Flowers in English, what does that say about the gang? I could now see the cholo back in 1950 saying, "hey vato loco ****, what should we call our new gang aye?.. "Let's see essay, we live among flowers, so let's call us the flower gang okay essay?
What a bunch of homos. A real tough name...Flowers. HAHAHAHA, the founders were a bunch of ****-mos.
uhh dude theyre called el monte flores because el monte used to be made up of little barrios or "towns" of workers, one of which were the workers for the bodger seed company which grew flower fields, it originally didnt start out as a gang but more of a town thing w/out violence...flores is a long tradition...same thing applies with lesser known barrios like el monte hayes and el monte hicks...history dude...learn it

I wonder what other gangs think of them when they ask "where you from" and they reply "I am a flower member" lol. This had me laughing for nearly an hour, my wife couldn't stop laughing either when I told her there's a gang called flowers. This is just too much fun to make fun of them.
flores moron...flores...and the name comes from a barrio in south el monte, south el monte used to be nothing but flower fields owned by the bodger seed company, the people of the little town needed protection from the KKK so they made a "group" not gang called flores...

I live in EL MOnte, California, and as a young resident of this city who is only 21 years i almost fear for the welfare of the children of this city. I have been living in e.m since a was a child, and even though i have keep my head straight and stayed in school, join the army, and am doing good, i fear for those who arent strong enough to do the same.

Even though, for the most part, i must honestly say that EMF gangmembers do not harm those of el monte, they do put young lives in stake by recruiting young boys and gilrs who idolize gang members. I for one, would like to be rid of all gangs!!!!!
