1)Actually began back in medieval times. French warriors would cut off the middle finger of British archers since this was the finger used to pull the string back on the bow. Archers who replaced them would stick their middle fingers up mocking the French showing them they got their finger and they're gonna launch an arrow through your head.

2)In present day, a gesture meaning fuck you, also an easy way to end a conversation

A finger that's typically used to tell people to go to hell and/or to fuck themselves by being positioned upright while the other fingers are facing down inside the palm of the hand.
I don't regard the middle finger as a negative physical gesture; whenever someone flicks me off I always assume they're conveying, "Excuse me kind sir, but I'd like to introduce you to the pleasures of prostate massage." To which I respond, "Why thank you considerate stranger, I gratefully accept your generous offer; please lead the way so we may begin to experiment."
