Most commonly known as a ✌️ Peace Sign, but traditionally called as a Victory Hand. Two fingers held up on one hand making a V sign.
The reverse of this symbol is considered an offence gesture in British culture, similar to giving the middle finger.
Victory Hand was approved as part of Unicode 1.1 in 1993 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.

The Victory Hand emoji supports skin tone modifiers. A yellow (or other non-human) skin tone should be shown by default, unless an emoji modifier is applied.
Platforms without support for emoji modifiers display a missing symbol character (box with a cross, alien, or question mark in it) next to any modified emoji.
