The headquarters of the the Purple Hand is a fort built in Henry and Peter's back garden. It was once threatened to be demolished by Mum, but with the help of Margaret and the producer of The Big Dig, it was kept and rebuilt. It is mainly a bunch of bars like monkey bars with a purple tarpaulin over it and an old sofa inside. In the books, it is positioned behind branches and there is a throne and a biscuit tin inside.
In the books, Henry's flag is a black flag with a white skull and crossbones on it. In the TV Series, it is made from an old pillow case painted purple and a light purple circle in the middle with a purple handprint in it.
