Gesture 20: « Va te faire foutre »
Gestes français - French Gestures
This is the most vulgar French gesture. It means "Up yours!" (or worse) and is the French equivalent of holding up your middle finger.
Hold your arm out with your hand in a fist, then smack your other hand onto it just above your elbow so that your hand swings up. Also known as le bras d'honneur.
Register - vulgar
