Hello Ingvild and everyone -

Thanks for this question...

What you have written below tells me the following:

1. the two hands start contacting each other, with the index finger on a fist, palms parallel and facing the floor
2. then the two hands move to the side, the right to the right side and the left to the left side
3. at the end of the movement side, the handshapes have become flat hands parallel to the floor with the palms up, and the thumbs are out to the side

if I have read this correctly, then I don't think any other symbol is necessary -

You could write a Rotation Symbol, but Rotation Symbols do not travel to the side - they stay in one place - there are Rotation arrows combined with straight arrows in the ISWA 2010, but they are advanced symbols and I don't think any Rotation Symbol is necessary if I read it correctly above…

Val ;-)

The hands move posistion as the flip - what would be the right sybol?
