Nov 5, is Guy Fawkes day,
Guy Fawkes mask.icon is what Anonymous uses
Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up the British House of Lords building with gunpowder. But an anonymous letter received on Nov 5 1605 by the authorities enabled the authorities to stop him.

See the movie V for Vendetta which uses the same mask symbol
