http://signbank.org/signpuddle/sgn-PL/latest.php?total=2 - look there, I
have created the SW sign for Czechy (Czech Republic). I didn't know how to
put the pic in the email.
I think it is an old sign for 'to comb', as now we have another sign for
this concept, different from 'Czech Republic'. Namely, the movement is the
same but instead of five fingers we use the index finger only :-).
