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

The "Small Element of with Vertical Bar At End of Horizontal Stroke" Symbol (⋴)

The ⋴ symbol represents a specific mathematical relationship. Visually, it resembles the standard "element of" symbol (∈) with a vertical bar at the end of its horizontal stroke.

Visual Representation

The ⋴ symbol combines the "element of" symbol (∈) with a vertical bar. The vertical bar typically touches or intersects the horizontal stroke of the "∈" symbol, distinguishing it from the standard "element of" notation.


While the ⋴ symbol isn't commonly seen in basic mathematical contexts, it can appear in specialized areas or advanced mathematics. Its interpretation can vary depending on the context in which it is used. When encountered, it's essential to consult the specific definitions provided in the source material where it appears.

Typing ⋴

To represent the "Small Element of with Vertical Bar At End of Horizontal Stroke" symbol in documents or platforms that support HTML entities, you can use the ⋴ entity. Do note, however, that the actual visual representation might vary based on the font and platform. If you're working outside of an HTML context, you might need specialized math software or libraries to display this symbol correctly.

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 8948. 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: &#8948;</b>My symbol: ⋴

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

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &isins;</b>My symbol: ⋴

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

CSS and HTML TextOutput
span:after {
content: "\22F4";}
<span>My symbol:</span>
My symbol: ⋴

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

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &#x22F4;</b>My symbol: ⋴
On the assumption that you already have your canvas and the context set up, use the Hex code in the format 0x22F4 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+22F4. 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 22F4 turns into ⋴. Note that you can omit any leading zeros.)
In JavaScript, the syntax is \uXXXX. So, our example would be \u22F4. (Note that the format is 4 hexadecimal characters.)
JavaScript TextOutput
let str = "\u22F4"
document.write("My symbol: " + str)
My symbol: ⋴
