To us Brits back of the hand facing the person is the F word (Gordon Ramsay)
Palm of the hand facing the person is for victory (Winston Churchill)
But we wont hold it against you lot lol

If you google images of 'Churchill victory sign' you'll see a minority but still quite a few images of him saying up yours to the viewers.

so a peace sign with the back of the hand is the same as the middle finger? huh, who knew!

Note - it normally comes with a slight upward gesture to indicate the up yours part :-)

Churchill gave 'the rods' to photographers as much as he gave the victory sign I think, it was a mix of telling the photographer to F off as well as Axis!

I very seldom say anything about a model or person. But she is a very photogenic lady, you seem to capture her very nicely. Good work as usual.

So I'm returning from lunch at work walking through one of the hallways in the building when a fellow employee says hello to me in passing with a back of the hand peace sign. I see this fellow almost everyday and he always speaks when he sees me. Normally I wouldn't question his back of the hand peace sign gesture, but after learning what I've learned about it's meaning on this thread, now I'm questioning it.......

I wouldn't dig to much into it. In California and Hawaii it meant "duces", slang for "later". When you drive past another car club member for example. In Hawaii the shaka was also prevent. \m/

If the fingers are diagonally across the chest or pointing down with the elbow up then that " later dude " if the fingers are straight up and away from the body a quick jab to the nose is in order lol

any more I do a sort of sideways "peace" sign. So bottom of hand and the 2 fingers twist. Imagine walking your fingers on a table top. But not walking motion.

What's that mean?


I want to die peacefully, in my sleep, like my grandfather.
Not screaming, terrified, like his passengers.

If you mean like this (pic) when you cross your fingers your wanting some good look

EG: you might say to someone fingers crossed you win, which would be the same as saying good look i hope you win
