This is a graphic of the ‘V for Vendetta’ mask from the 2006 film, it is a stylised “Guy Fawkes”. Since then it has also been used by the hacktivist group ‘Anonymous’. On the Wikipedia page it describes Anonymous as a “loosely associated international network of activist and hacktivist entities”.

When creating graphics I found this file on Wikimedia which is in the public domain. But I wanted different variations, so I created an isolated white one and an isolated black one, in PNG format, both with transparent backgrounds.

Here they are, you can right-click on them to download and use them, they are public domain so crack on and do what you want with them.

The group originated from the 4chan imageboard in 2003, and seem to have grown bigger and stronger year on year. At the end of 2014 they published credit card numbers and other personal information which allegedly belonged to a leading Ku Klux Klan member, this was during a grudge between the 2 groups which was fueled by protests in Ferguson. Then at the start of 2015 they declared war on jihadists in wake of the Paris Charlie Hebdo shootings. This is an organisation we will probably be hearing a lot more about.
