7 Does anyone know what this symbol stands for. The hand and the bird Does anyone know what this symbol stands for? The hand and the bird. It is not just any bird. It is the canary. In olden days it was used by miners to determine if a mine was safe to enter. So they lowered the bird in a cage into the mine – if it came up dead, it was not safe to enter the mine. If it came up alive, they went down to work. Some even carried it on their shoulders or kept the birds in a cage next to them while working. If the bird dropped dead, they ran out of the mine. in these modern days, we still have canaries. People who are getting ill from exposures to chemicals and other triggers in their environment. They are the modern day Canaries – will we heed their warning? The black hand stands for STOP the pollution and the canary is for a warning that change must come and also for hope that we can heal when we change. I urge you to pick up a button and wear it as a reminder of the suffering caused to people suffering from environmental sensitivities and tell this story to others so that the story is passed on from one to another until we can all listen to the canary and demand only healthy living as a way of life.
