American Sign Language:  "center" or "middle"

There are a couple of different ways to sign "center."

CENTER: (bent middle finger variation)


Center or Middle (flat hand variation)
You can do the dominant handshape with either a flat hand or you can use a middle finger bent forward from the large knuckle.  This sign is can be combined with DEAF to mean "Deaf Center."

Here is a lesser used variation of "middle."  I wouldn't use this for "center."
This version means more along the lines of "the middle of a series" or "middle name."
