What is Salute

A salute is a solemn form of greeting, demonstrating the deepest respect. It can be compared to giving honors. The salute is used in many cultures and subcultures. It goes back to the times of Ancient Rome, when it was customary to greet the oncoming person with a raised hand with fingers pressed to the palm. Gradually, this ritual spread first throughout Europe, and then throughout the world and changed. Other gestures began to be used as a salutatory salute, for example: the Nazi salute with a raised hand with the slogan “Heil Hitler” well known to us from war films; a specific gesture of the Soviet pioneers - a bent right hand, a raised head and a reciprocal slogan Be ready - always ready; putting one's hand to the headgear of military personnel of all countries of the world, etc.

The welcome salute is still used today, but more for joke purposes. It is appropriate in situations where you have not seen a person for a long time and are extremely happy to meet you, or when you meet the hero of an event, for example, a hero of the day. High technologies allow us to give a salute from a distance, using appropriate emoticons or original GIFs, a large selection of which can be found on our website.
