Abstract. For a region of the nearest neighbor ferromagnetic Ashkin--Teller spin systems on $\Bbb Z^2$, we characterize the existence of multiple Gibbs states via percolation. In particular, there are multiple Gibbs states if and only if there exists percolation of any of the spin types. (I.e., the magnetized states are characterized by percolation of the dominant species.) This result was previously known only for the Potts models on $\Bbb Z^2$.
