In Morocco, a popular and revered symbol is the Hand of Fatima.
It is supposed to bring good luck and protect a household's safety and well-being. Women often wear necklaces with the Hand of Fatima as a pendant, and some houses have a HoF painted or hanging outside.
Some days I feel like flipping the Middle Finger of Fatima.

...middle finger of Fatima...hehhehheh... I love it. Great chuckle - and if you come across a middle finger (or even the brits' two-finger version) of the Hand of Fatima pendant, you must swear right here and now that you will get some of them for me!!
