Obviously you can have a word in any sing language for the character "w".
However, as sign languages are based on signs, there are no words in sign
languages *using *the character w not do they use the sound that is
expressed by the w.

When there is a "w" theme to the Wikipedia globe, you will have to do
without anything that has relevance to the "w" character or sound in any way
when you include SignWriting. You can artificially make a link be selecting
"we" in for instance American Sign Language as suggested by Michael Snow. I
take it that you all understand that there is as much relation with this
"we" to the English "we" as there is to for instance the Japanese "we".
