Themes in The Hunger Games
The Mockingjay Pin: Katniss wears this pin during the Games to represent District 12. The pin was originally given to Katniss by Madge, the mayor's daughter, before she left to participate in the Games. It also reminds Katniss of her father because he loved this bird and would whistle to the sound of them.
Food: Symbolizes wealth, plenty, and comfort. It is the dividing line between the rich and the poor. Food is scarce and in some districts they deal with starvation.
Dandelions: Represent hope for Katniss. She saw these flowers when Peeta offered her bread for her family who were starving to death.
