The Spanish Cobras are a primarily, but not exclusively, Latino gang started in Humboldt Park in Chicago during the early 1960s.[clarification needed] The Cobras are considered the second-largest Latino gang on the north and northwest side, with the Maniac Latin Disciples being the first.[citation needed] The Cobras are part of the Folk Nation;[1] symbols include the cobra, raised pitchforks, and the initials "SC".[2]

Within Chicago, the neighborhoods with the strongest Cobra presence are Humboldt Park, Hermosa, Logan Square and Kelvyn Park. They are also found in Cicero, and have a small presence in the McKinley Park area on the south side.[citation needed] They are also known to operate in other parts of Illinois, as well as Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha in Wisconsin, and Detroit and are quite large in Flint in Michigan.[3]
