In much of the world today, the thumbs up means, "O.K.", "Yes", or "I approve." But in Iran, Afghanistan, and parts of Italy and Greece it is an obscene insult, especially when combined with a sweep of the arms.

Many countries have developed their own sign languages, as much out of necessity as any real national reasoning. However, not all are officially recognised as a language, mostly because they are not always standard throughout a country, but more like dialects of a sort.
