"The Finger" refers to the middle finger, that is, the third finger from either side of your hand. When it is raised on its own and pointed at someone, it means "fuck you," or similar. This symbolism was created by the Greeks, and gets its definition from the fact that the hand takes the shape of a penis and testicles.
Boy: "Did that guy just give me the finger?"
Girl: "I think so. Maybe you should quit being such an asshole."
