This is the one you are talking about?

I can understand what you mean. It seems odd that the index, middle,  
and thumb are on the right side of the hand, but on the left side of  
the symbol. The reason is by following the "every sign has a center  
rule" and this being a right hand, the fingers curve to the center (or  
to the left). I guess the only other way would be to have the fingers  
on the right side of the symbol curving to the left, but it look very  
odd to see that. ;-)
