Let’s say you have an argument with your significant other - you decide that maybe you should be the first to break the silence and make up. You could enter with the Victory Hand Sign Emoji, both coming across as humorous but also retaining the virtue behind the gesture. A less common way to use the emoji is to use it in the victory context; let’s say you are about to play in a soccer match and wish to get your team pumped for the match.
