Also referred to as “flipping the bird” it roughly translates to “fuck off”, “fuck you”, “shove it up your ass”, “up yours” or “go fuck yourself”.
According to wikipedia, “the gesture dates back to Ancient Greece and it was also used in Ancient Rome. Historically, it represented the phallus. In some modern cultures, it has gained increasing recognition as a sign of disrespect, and has been used by music artists (notably more common among hardcore punk bands and rappers), actors, celebrities, athletes, and politicians.”
