A Western Flag for the Chinese Zodiac: The Year of the Rat

The Eastern Zodiac begins with the Year of the Rat or in this case the Year of the Rodent.  The Western Symbol for the Year of the Rat is essentially a Roman Number Three on its side, however the symbol is directly based upon the Chinese upper radical but has the 'hands touching.'

The magical form of the Rat is the Squirrel.
