Word Origin & History

stripe
"a line or band in cloth," 1626 (but probably much older), from M.Du. or M.L.G. stripe "stripe, streak," from P.Gmc. *stripanan (cf. Dan. stribe "a striped fabric," Ger. Streifen "stripe"), cognate with O.Ir. sriab "stripe," from PIE base *streig- (see strigil). Of soldiers'
chevrons, badges, etc., attested from 1827.

stripe
"a stroke or lash," 1440, probably a special use of stripe (1), from the marks left by a lash. Cf. also Du. strippen "to whip," W.Fris. strips, apparently cognate but not attested as early as the Eng. word.
