The Mathematical Symbol "Element of with Vertical Bar At End of Horizontal Stroke (⋳)"

The "Element Of with Vertical Bar At End of Horizontal Stroke" Symbol (⋳)

The ⋳ symbol is a more specialized notation within the realm of set theory and mathematics. It builds upon the fundamental concept of membership within a set.

Visual Representation

This symbol is a modified version of the regular "Element Of" (⋳) notation. Imagine the "Element Of" symbol with an additional vertical bar at the end of its horizontal stroke. Depending on the font and representation, the appearance might slightly vary, but the essence is the same.

Meaning and Usage

The exact meaning of ⋳ can depend on the context in which it's used. It represents a particular kind of membership within a set, perhaps with specific conditions or restrictions that don't apply to the regular ∈ symbol. As this is a less standard symbol, when it appears in literature or mathematical papers, there should be a definition or legend specifying its exact meaning in that context.


Suppose you encounter a statement like \( x ⋳ A \) in a mathematical document. This might denote that \( x \) is an element of set \( A \) with some unique properties or under certain conditions. The exact nature of these properties or conditions would need to be specified elsewhere in the document.

Representation in Other Contexts

In LaTeX, this symbol might not have a direct, standard command due to its specialized nature. However, custom commands or certain packages could allow its representation.

Application in Mathematics

While not as widely recognized as the base ∈ symbol, the ⋳ symbol can show up in more specialized areas of mathematics. It's particularly useful when there's a need to differentiate between general membership and membership with additional stipulations or conditions.


The ⋳ symbol offers a more nuanced representation of set membership than the more common ∈. To understand its specific meaning in any given context, reference to the particular literature or discourse it's part of will be essential.

How To Insert the ⋳ Symbol

(Method 1) Copy and paste the symbol.

The easiest way to get the ⋳ symbol is to copy and paste it into your document.

Bear in mind that this is a UTF-8 encoded character. It must be encoded as UTF-8 at all stages (copying, replacing, editing, pasting), otherwise it will render as random characters or the dreaded �.

(Method 2) Use the "Alt Code."

If you have a keyboard with a numeric pad, you can use this method. Simply hold down the Alt key and type 8947. When you lift the Alt key, the symbol appears. ("Num Lock" must be on.)

(Method 3) Use the HTML Decimal Code (for webpages).

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &#8947;</b>My symbol: ⋳

(Method 4) Use the HTML Entity Code (for webpages).

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &isinsv;</b>My symbol: ⋳

(Method 5) Use the CSS Code (for webpages).

CSS and HTML TextOutput
span:after {
content: "\22F3";}
<span>My symbol:</span>
My symbol: ⋳

(Method 6) Use the HTML Hex Code (for webpages and HTML canvas).

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &#x22F3;</b>My symbol: ⋳
On the assumption that you already have your canvas and the context set up, use the Hex code in the format 0x22F3 to place the ⋳ symbol on your canvas. For example:
JavaScript Text
const x = "0x"+"E9"
ctx.fillText(String.fromCodePoint(x), 5, 5);

(Method 7) Use the Unicode (for various, e.g. Microsoft Office, JavaScript, Perl).

The Unicode for ⋳ is U+22F3. The important part is the hexadecimal number after the U+, which is used in various formats. For example, in Microsoft Office applications (e.g. Word, PowerPoint), do the following:
[Hold down Alt]
[Press x]

(The 22F3 turns into ⋳. Note that you can omit any leading zeros.)
In JavaScript, the syntax is \uXXXX. So, our example would be \u22F3. (Note that the format is 4 hexadecimal characters.)
JavaScript TextOutput
let str = "\u22F3"
document.write("My symbol: " + str)
My symbol: ⋳
