Case of the Handsign

*See the bottom of this post for GLOs represented in this thread.

In this thread, post pictures of the handsigns of various organizations so we can all see, enjoy and let out a hefty chuckle at some similarities.

This is not a war zone. If you have something negative to say, take it elsewhere.

*If you find pictures showing Greeks in a positive light, please feel free to post more than one pic of your organization.

NOTE:

Like many of you, I've run across some pictures of handsigns that resembled those of other organizations.





It has been said that there are only so many ways you can twist up a hand, so let's not get offended.

This is rather off topic but, in regards to the above photo, is there a particular name for the jackets the BGLO members are wearing? I think I've read that there is, but I'm not sure.

I can't speak for BGLO members, but I call mine a "crossing jacket." I've also called it a "line jacket."

where i'm from, if it's customized (meaning line number, line name, chapter name, year & season of crossing), we do call it a line jacket. otherwise, we just call them jackets.
