Question Symbol for Family - Help please

Hi,
I'm looking for some help or ideas for a design I'm working on. I'm after some sort of symbol to represent family or brothers, but not chinese or kanji, something different. I'd prefer to keep away from any words or lettering and keep it quite simple if possible. Any help, ideas or picture would be much appreciated.
Cheers,
Kev

looked on a symbolic website and they came up with these as symbols for brothers (no images though, i'm afraid):

- Double thunderbolt (German)
- Handshake (Western)
- Bears (Native American)
- Crossed broadswords (Celtic)
- Copper (Alchemy)
- Two torches diagonally crossed (Roman)


Hope this helps

There's quite a few family symbols on this site for your perusal.

Hopefully you'll find an image or two that'll spark some inspiration.
