American Sign Language: "Germany"

The sign for "Germany" has a couple of versions. They are both worth knowing.

In this first version of Germany you cross your hands (in "5-handshapes") and then flutter the fingers.

GERMAN / GERMANY (Version 1)


There is another way to sign "Germany." This other way is based on the old German military helmet with the pointy emblem on the top.

This is a "real" sign, (I'm not making this up). I personally recommend you stick with the version above, but some people prefer the "pointy helmet" version.

Tap the large knuckle of your right "index finger" on your upper forehead twice.
Note: That is an index finger NOT and "L" hand.  Tuck the thumb in.

Germany / German: (Version 2)
