Nevertheless, I'll explain for reals. Christopher Lee, the actor who played Count Dooku, also played Saruman the White in the LotR movies. The White Hand was his symbol, worn by his minions the Uruk-hai. The White Hand is a fourth wall meta-nod to the late actor, and it relates to the mention that 'Christopher Lee plays a good guy this time' in the production notes.
