Reporting the Reverse V-Sign around the World – Learn the meaning of hand gestures

The reverse v-mark is one of the most popular hand gestures: the v-mark. This is done by lifting and separating the first and second fingers while clamping the remaining fingers and keeping the palm facing the speaker. The palm may look inward or outward, which may change the report.

A popular theory of the reverse V sign goes back all the time when England and France were in war. The English longbowmen were very scared and considered the best archers. When the English archers were captured, the French cut off the index of the hand and the middle finger to make the archers unusable when future battles occur. As a crude form of psychological warfare, the English Longbowmen introduced the two fingers to the French before the battle to show they were able to kick their ass on the battlefield.
