I'd be more concerned with it being associated with Victory - pretend wanna be Harley.

I believe if it were telling you to pizz off, it would be showing you the back of the hand, not the palm.

The back of the hand IS facing the owner.

If you like anything with the old British Commonwealth colors and flag design, get it. Looks good.

A.ussies, Brits, Ugandans all could learn to like it. Very similar color pattern to their own country"s flags

Th Brit flag signifies that it's Churchill's WWII V for Victory sign, which was later used as a peace sign by the counter culture. Reversed it says F U.
