Derby #128: Things That Start With The Letter V

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

We're starting our Alphabet Derby Series in the logical place: with the 21st letter of the alphabet, the very virtuous V. Flip through your dictionary until you find one or more promising images or concepts that start with V, then go to town. No, wait: go to village. Now we're getting in the spirit of this thing, huh? Oh, and stay away from pop-cultural properties like V or V for Vendetta. We don't own that stuff.

No video-game references.

No text. But if you want to use images to suggest the shape of the letter V - say, a flock of violet Viking vultures flying in formation - that's OK.

Things that start with V in languages other than English are OK, as long as you can prove it's a real word in an actual language spoken by humans.
