The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.
Variation. A Deaf Afghan showed me this sign years ago.
These are not ASL conventional nor official signs but unofficial sign loans (not yet adopted). In addition, they are not conventional signs as there are other different (again unconventional) signs. For example, another foreign sign is shaking "A" (not distinct enough for ASL thus not adopted into ASL) and another sign is the same sign which means Osama bin Laden in ASL.
This entry will be updated with further information.
ASL signs for the category of countries, including continents.
ASL signs for the category of cities around the world plus states and provinces in North America. Note that many loanwords/signs are borrowed from other countries if not available in ASL.
