Native American Arrows; the arrow pointing to the right meant protection. When pointing to the left it meant warding off evil. A broken arrow symbolized peace whereas crossed arrows were suggestive of friendship.
The meaning of the single arrow indicated protection and defense. Arrows also signified direction, force, movement, power and direction of travel. When an arrow pointed to the left it meant warding off evil, pointing to the right meant protection and an arrow pointing down meant peace.
