Der Klenkes ist das Erkennungszeichen der Bewohner von Aachen und wurde zu einer Art Wahrzeichen stilisiert. Es handelt sich hier um den abgespreizten kleinen Finger der rechten Hand.
Aachen war für seine Tuchindustrie und dadurch auch für seine Nadelfabriken bekannt. Die Arbeiterinnen benutzten zum Überprüfen und Sortieren der Nadeln ihren rechten kleinen Finger. Im Laufe der Zeit verlor die Tuchindustrie immer mehr ihre vorherrschende Rolle im Raum Aachen. Aber das Wahrzeichen des Klenkes blieb.
Fern der Heimat ist der Klenkes-Gruß besonders nützlich: Der Aachener gibt sich damit einem anderen Aachener zu erkennen, den er beispielsweise anhand des Autokennzeichens (AC) identifiziert hat. Auf diese Weise hat der Klenkes schon zu spontanen Freudenfeiern verholfen.

The Klenkes is the sign of the inhabitants of Aachen. It means the spreaded small finger of the right hand.
Aachen was well-known for its cloth industry and therefor also for its needle factories. The workers used their right small finger for examining and sorting the needles. By the time the cloth industry lost ever more its prevailing role in the area of Aachen. But the sign of the Klenkes remained.
Far from the city the Klenkes greeting is particularly useful: The Aachener makes himself recognizeable to other Aacheners, who are identified for example on the basis of the licenseplate (AC). In this way the Klenkes already helped to spontaneous joy celebrations.
