Black flag with blue horizontal stripe. What is it?

I've been noticing the following symbol on some cars and trucks starting last year where I live, in Massachusetts. It is usually in place of the front license plate, or decal in the rear window of the truck.


Does anyone know what this symbol stands for?

did a google search and came up with this:

http://www.1uptravel.com/flag/flags/ufe.html

a symbol of mourning for police officers who have died. symbolizes the 'thin blue line.'

thanks for the interesting observation.

It's not as strange as it seems. The website I was using to put up the original picture blocked direct access to the url soon after you posted your answer so I edited the link to point to your source.
