I have seen this so many times but have you ever seen this headband before and what does it symbolize?!?

    It's not a "headband."

    It's a scarf or shawl, worn around the head, neck or shoulders, known as a "keffiyeh."

    It is seen in a number of different patterns, similar to Scots "clan tartans."

    I believe that particular pattern is specifically Palestinian.

      I remembered seeing people wearing it, and searched for "Arab headscarf."
      The rest came from that.

      My pleasure.
