The Miscellaneous Symbols block consists of a very heterogeneous collection of symbols that do not fit in any other Unicode character block and that tend to be rather pictographic in nature.

Characters in the Miscellaneous Symbols may be rendered in more than one way, unlike the characters in the Dingbats block, in which characters correspond to an explicit glyph. For example, Earth and Uranus each have at least two completely different common renderings.


Unicode's Miscellaneous Symbols code block reserves the 256 code points from U+2600 to U+26FF, of which 191 are currently assigned.
