The Guy Fawkes mask is something that members wear to conceal their identity.
About the maskEdit
There are many different designs of mask but the most common mask is on the right of this article. There are much more different designs in the gallery below.
The Guy Fawkes mask is a stylised depiction of Guy Fawkes, the best-known member of the Gunpowder Plot, an attempt to blow up the House of Lords in London on November 5th, 1605 in order to restore a Catholic head of state. The use of a mask on an effigy has long roots as part of Guy Fawkes Night celebrations.
A stylised portrayal of a face with an over-sized smile and red cheeks, a wide moustache upturned at both ends, and a thin vertical pointed beard, designed by illustrator David Lloyd, came to represent broader protest after it was used as a major plot element in Alan Moore's V for Vendetta, published in 1982, and its 2006 film adaptation. After appearing in Internet forums, the mask became a well-known symbol for the online hacktivist group Anonymous, used in Project Chanology, the Occupy movement, and other anti-government and anti-establishment protests around the world.
Many anon's wear different masks when they upload their video messages on YouTube. You can also see some people wearing these types of masks in specific videos. For example, in ED+ Adventures in Equestria, Ed (in human form) is seen wearing a mask in Episode 1 Version 2 despite his face being revalidated in the first version of the episode.
