About this deal

In a televised speech, President Snow banned any references to the mockingjay symbol or association with Katniss Everdeen, on pain of death. New with tags: A brand-new, unused, unworn and undamaged item in the original packaging (such as the .

The classic mockingjay pin is represented by a bird carrying an arrow suspended in the center of a circle.

Why would Suzanne Collins, author of the book series, opt for Madge to be the giver of this gift instead? While the thought of a tiny little pin being used as a weapon might seem silly to us, the image of the mockingjay, as we will find out, is indeed an incredibly powerful and important weapon. The Hunger Games Notes Media resources and reflections on The Hunger Games book trilogy and film quadrilogy. Cut a square of your wax paper so that it is big enough to overlap the image of the mockingjay you will be tracing. Upon realizing that the bird on her pin is a mockingjay, Katniss refers to the birds as "something of a slap in the face to the Capitol".

Maysilee Donner was twin sister to Madge's mother, friend to Katniss's mother, ally to Haymitch in the Games. The piece was created by jewelry designer Dana Schneider, who was also responsible for creating Peeta's locket for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. In the first movie, Katniss got her pin at the Hob from Greasy Sae, and she gave it to her younger sister Primrose Everdeen as a gift, promising that it would protect her.

This pin was Katniss Everdeen's tribute token and was worn by her in the arena as a symbol of her home district. In the spirit of honoring past tributes who had fallen in the Games, perhaps Madge simply wanted to honor her aunt’s legacy, and she gifted the Mockingjay pin to Katniss as a kind of blessing on her, in the hopes that her fate would be different from that of her aunt’s.

Everyone wanted to remember a particularly exciting Hunger Games by wearing the winner's token (Katniss mused that this use and popularity of the symbol must drive President Snow crazy). Everdeen was known to sing to the mockingjays, [1] and when he did, all the birds fell silent to listen. Although mockingjays can't enunciate words, they can echo any vocalization from a child's high-pitched warble to a man's deep tones. I believe the graphic artists who worked on posters and other symbols for The Hunger Games series did an outstanding job. Rue, who had a special relationship with the mockingjays back in District 11, decided that she could trust Katniss after seeing her wear the pin.

A similar series of Mockingjays has appeared on DVD and soundtrack covers and inserts, and on various kinds of cards, banners, and posters. However, while the film adaptations of the franchise opted for a simpler, more coincidental explanation for the source of the pin, Collin’s subplot involving Madge and her family is far more complex and engaging.
