OK Hand

Sรญmbolo de estรก bien

A hand symbol for okay (OK). An "O" is formed with the index finger and thumb and the legs of a "K" are formed with the middle, ring and pinky fingers. Everything is good. I'm A-ok. This emoji can also be used to communicate the act of smoking cannabis (marijuana). A marijuana cigarette (joint) is stereotypically smoked while holding (pinching) between the thumb and index finger. Several versions of this emoji leave a curiously placed space between the thumb and index finger, which can be interpreted as leaving space for the joint, albeit an invisible one. In addition, some versions of this emoji display only the middle and ring finger, making the "K" less pronounced and obvious. Coincidentally, the softbank code includes the number 420, a number that many people associate with smoking pot.

Editorial Comment

Only the Thumb and index finger connected to make a circle with no additional gesture usually means you're perfect, don't worry about it. It's only a coincidence that the hex for this Apple/Softbank emoji is e420 :) iEmoji old name: Okay sign.
