Abstract: In this paper, using the database of the university of Michigan Radio Astronomy Observatory (UMRAO) at three (4.8 GHz, 8 GHZ, and 14.5 GHz) radio frequencies, we studied the polarization properties for 47 BL Lacertae objects, and found that (1) the polarizations at higher radio frequency is higher than those at lower frequency, and (2) relativistic beaming could explain the polarization characteristic of BL Lacs.
