If your talking about the "V" for victory using two fingers, it does have meaning, depending on which way your palm faces. Palm outwards facing someone else means Peace, palm facing you while back of your hand faces the other person basically mean "F@K U, i've got mine". This symbol was derived during the middle ages when england was at war with France. Bowmen, or Long Bowmen (aka, archers) use two fingers to draw back their bow string and were the deadliest unit of their time. They were considered a prime targets by the emeny and, when captured, their drawstring fingers would be removed. Whenever an archer survived capture, and march through a couquered city, they would hold their drawstring hand up, back of hand facing outward, with their two drawstring fingers extended upward. This was their way of telling the enemt F U! I've still got mine!" Hope this helps. Cheers! more
