In the UK, Australia and New Zealand, the 'peace' sign as demonstrated below by Rik from the Young Ones, always has the palm face forward. The 'up yours' sign, as demonstrated by Vyv from the Young Ones, always has the back of the hand facing foward.
The ' up yours' sign with two fingers is equivalent to the one with one finger.
In some of the photos I see on here people are giving the "up yours" hand sign and I wonder if they are meaning too or if there is not the distinction in other places?
If you are travelling to the UK, Australia or NZ becareful about the kind of peace sign you give, because if you give the 'up yours' signal by accident you might be unintentionally picking a fight. Of course any decent person will probably recognise it as a mistake but, alas, not everybody is decent unfortunately.
EDIT: I should add, it is also the case in Ireland and South Africa. Pretty much English speaking countries outside of North America.
