Every day we interact with objects, places and sensations that affect the way we think and feel. This can be used to the writer's advantage by planting symbols in the reader's path to reinforce a specific message, feeling or idea.
Look at the setting and the character's state of mind, and then think about what you want the reader to see. Is there a descriptive symbol or two that works naturally within the scene to help foreshadow an event or theme, or create insight into the character's emotional plight?
A straight, tall pine or spruce tree
A strutting rooster
A freshly washed or waxed car
A parent with her well-groomed/dressed children
Awards, trophies, medals, ribbons
T-shirts bearing team names and slogans
Displaying items with a designer logo or brand
A mother holding her newborn
Army, navy, air force
People clapping and cheering
A lifted chin
Someone who is well dressed
Professional manicures, pedicures (especially ornate ones)
The statue of Liberty
Tall, designer buildings
Class rings, Jackets, etc
Status symbols: corner office, name on placard, business cards, student council spot, leading role,club membership, team member
Popularity, having a sought after boyfriend/girlfriend
These are just a few examples of things one might associate with Pride. Some are more powerful than others. A screaming crowd cheering for their school football team is a strong symbol, and likely will not require reinforcement. However, a single tree growing straight and tall may not foreshadow Pride on its own. Let the story's tone decide if one strong symbol or several smaller ones work the best.
