V Sign

The metallic bookmark with a V sign from a souvenir shop in Lithuania.



The V sign is a hand gesture in which the first and second fingers are raised and parted, whilst the thumb and remaining fingers are clenched. During World War II, Winston Churchill popularized its use as a "Victory" sign (for V as in victory). In the United States, it is also used to mean "Peace", a meaning that became popular during the peace movement of the 1960s.
