My Photo Gallery: A Peace Sign!
Our Family just love taking a pose using a Peace or V sign hand gesture. I think it is also common to some people who loves making a pose using this kind of hand gesture.
According to Wikipedia, The V sign is a hand gesture in which the first and second fingers are raised and parted, whilst the remaining fingers are clenched. During World War II, Winston Churchill popularized its use as a "Victory" sign (for V as in victory) initially with palm inwards and later in the war palm outwards. In the United States, with the palm outwards, and more recently, occasionally inward as well, it is also used to mean "Peace", a meaning that became popular during the peace movement of the 1960s.
In modern-day United Kingdom, the palm-outward gesture is understood to mean "peace" (often associated with hippie culture), or sometimes "victory", while the palm-inward gesture, often accompanied by an upwards flicking motion, is an offensive, insulting gesture of defiance. In East Asia the gesture is commonly used with the palm outward, connoting positive meaning.
