The rings seem to be flashed around 'alot' during the Itachi/Kisame scene and Orichimaru's is on display on someones skeletal hand. What does the word/symbol mean?

The ring is drawn from ancient Chinese and Japanese lore. The kanji on each ring have served in the past as representations of Gods, to help in concentration before battle and in protection from evil.

Itachi's ring mean Shu(yellowish-red).
Kisame:Minami (South)
Orochimaru:Sora (Sky)

Its episode 81. And somebody posted the translations for the rings a while back but I can't remember where. The words on the rings are their rankings in the Akastuki.

Yes...the moment a ring is flashed, a short note appears...like at the top of the screen I think (I'm not sure)....just a short one...and if I remember correctly...it was kinda colored in white, unlike the typical subtitle color, so I would understand if it were pretty difficult to notice. :D

I have not read the "post" the guy above me mentioned about...so I can't really say anything substantial about ranks and stuff...but I think it was "Scarlet" and "South"....and I remember another post saying it was taken from a Chinese/Japanese myth thingie.... they just sound like directions or ordinary words to me...but obviously they have a significant meaning in the story since they wouldn't wear those stuff on their fingers so prominently if they didn't actually meant anything...hehe but to say that those words signified their ranks in Akatsuki...I'm not sure....I've always thought all 9 were equals or something...but that's just my theory...

OMG. I'm so sorry. I thought I type where I get the information from. Gomen ne, gomen ne. I got it from LeafNinja.com. It's a very cool site. It has a lot of things related to Naruto that we didn't even know.
