Ok, here is my idea I`ve had as Joerg pointed me to some Graphics. My
intention was to take this  hand mirroring it so there is a pair of
Hands and place the following things on them. On the left I would put
the Swirl and on the right hand I would put some Sign for Freedom (maybe
a Dove). Above the two hands should be place for a slogan like this:
"Remember, all you get is real free..."
