Windows 7: Word 2010, Custom Bullet List, Unicode 1F44A

Word 2010, Custom Bullet List, Unicode 1F44A

I'm needing to use the Unicode Character U+1F44A "Fisted Hand Sign" as a bullet.

Word uses the font "Segoe UI" to display this font, going by Internet Searches both Times New Roman and Ariel (sp) have this symbol. I cannot find this symbol using Windows 8 Character Map*. I cannot find a way to find this character, and still, I really need to use this symbol as a Bullet Point.

Inside of word Using Alt + X confirms the symbol code 1F44A, and still I cannot find a way to use this symbol. Is there a limit, why? Have I missed something? Any help greatly welcome.

Notes:
Character Map:
Have tried doing an advance search for "Fist"
Have tried the Unicode 1f44a - which results in an error after typing four characters

Found it.

Open the Character Map (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map) then select Segoe UI Symbol from the Font drop list. The fist symbol is about half way down the scroll list of symbols.

If you need instructions on how to add that symbol to your Word bullet style list just let me know.

If you do not have the Segoe UI Symbol character set see this link:
Segoe UI Symbol - Version 1.00

Thank you kindly for the link to the font link, that allows me to use this symbol as a Bullet. Now to edit the document as required.

Thank you for your input Gewb

Edit: Not exactly the same symbol, but it still allows me to achieve the desired results.
