Microsoft sends messages on Wingdings Font

This is a intresting one.

The Wingdings Font included with Windows has a history of controversy. In 1992, only days after the release of Windows 3.1, it was discovered that the character sequence "NYC" in Wingdings was rendered as Skull and crossbones symbol, Star of David, and thumbs up gesture. This could be interpreted as a message of approval of killing Jews, especially those from New York City.

Microsoft strongly denied this was intentional, and insisted that the final arrangement of the glyphs in the font was largely random. Various other combinations of Wingings characters are alleged to have special significance by conspiracy theorists, but these results are likely purely coincidental.


  1. I do believe this is just a coincidence. But if you believe that it was purposly done and there really is hidden messages, then please tell me another one that you have found. I have seen this same example used many times but never anything else.

  2. Q33NY - the first 09.11 fligt, just type it in Windings...
