Appropriate bandanna colors?

Bandannas. I love them. I wear them to garden or anytime I'm going to sweat. The problem, though, is that whole gang thing. Help me sort this out. What colors can I wear? Or should I just avoid bandannas and get some other kind of kerchief?

I know all too well not to wear blue (crips), red (bloods), yellow (Latin kings), or black (latin kings as well?).
The kids I volunteer with in an inner-city gardening program have said that my brown and pink bandannas are OK. They about had a heart attack the one time I accidentally wore blue (bloods territory, apparently), so I'm going to toss that one right out.
I have two purposes to this question. One is to find or compile a comprehensive guide to gang colors (Folks? MS13?) throughout the US. I've seen way too many conflicting or confusing reports.
The other is to decide whether I should just avoid the bandanna entirely and make myself some flowery kerchiefs instead. Am I going to accidentally "represent" in a bandanna?
