Meaning and Description

The "Crossed Fingers" emoji, also commonly known as the "Good Luck" gesture, is a charming symbol that embodies hope, luck, and the anticipation of positive outcomes! Visually, this emoji depicts a hand with the index and middle fingers crossed over each other, while the other fingers are curled inwards. The default skin tone of the hand emoji is neutral, but it can be modified with various skin-tone colors.

This gesture holds a rich cultural history, as crossed fingers have been linked to good luck and wishful thinking for centuries. Some believe it's because it resembles the Christian cross. Going back to 16th century England, it's said people crossed their fingers to fend off bad luck and sickness.

When people talk with their friends or post on social media, the fingers crossed emoji is frequently used to convey hope, express a desire for a positive outcome, or wish someone else good luck. For example, you might use it when talking about big moments like a test, job interview, or competition (e.g., "Wish me luck"). Additionally, it can show that you're feeling excited or nervous when you're not sure how something will turn out.

Remember, however, that the meaning of this gesture varies globally. In Vietnam, it's viewed as disrespectful, with its significance resembling that of the middle finger in the U.S. culture. Meanwhile, in German-speaking countries, Sweden, and Latvia, this gesture is used to indicate that someone is lying. So, always be mindful of the cultural context when using it.

In addition, in the Japanese anime Jujutsu Kaisen, there's a character named Gojo Satoru who uses a hand gesture that looks similar to the emoji when he performs his special move called Domain Expansion: Unlimited Void, so this emoji will occasionally appear in posts related to the anime.
