Ollivander: "Good wand, that one. But I suppose they snapped it in half when you got expelled?"
Rubeus Hagrid: "Er — yes, they did, yes. I've still got the pieces, though."
Ollivander: "But you don't use them?"
Rubeus Hagrid: "Oh, no, sir."

Hagrid's Pink Umbrella[1] was a term used to refer to an umbrella illegally used to hold Rubeus Hagrid's wand after he was expelled from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1943.


During his third year at Hogwarts, Hagrid was falsely accused by Tom Riddle to have released a creature on the school that killed a muggle-born witch named Myrtle. As a result of this, his wand was destroyed by the Ministry of Magic. Although it was destroyed, Dumbledore allowed him to secretly keep the shards of his wand in the shaft of a pink umbrella, the shards still possessing a good portion of the wand's original power. However, since he never graduated, Hagrid's magic was never flawless; so even though he was able to use the pink umbrella as a wand substitute, he did not have the skill required for even simple feats of magic. This caused him to rarely perform the spells that he wanted to.
