Apparently, during the city’s industrial past, Aachen (Aachen lies in Germany and right on the border with the Netherlands and Belgium) was a centre of needle manufacture. Quality workers in the factories used to test the finished needles by a flick of their little fingers. Today it has become an informal greeting among Aacheners (or “Öchers”).
