๐Ÿ–– Vulcan Salute

Meaning

Vulcan Salute emoji is the picture of a hand gesture, which looks like the โœ‹ Raised Hand with fingers brought apart between the middle and the ๐Ÿ’ Ring ones. This gesture was invented by one of the characters of โญ Star Trek series, who was the ๐Ÿ‘ฝ Alien. There, it meant the formal greeting and wish to prosper of his race. The fans of the series use it exactly in the same meaning โ€“ mostly, instead of โ€œhelloโ€ or โ€œgoodbyeโ€ to a friend. Yet, it is already not only geek-only gesture and it is used in this sense not only by fans but even by those, who have never seen โญ Star Trek.

Examples of using

โ€œHello, my dear friend! ๐Ÿ––โ€
โ€œGoodbye and good luck to you! ๐Ÿ––โ€
