Unicode Character for Funnel to Signify Filtering (4)

Is there a unicode character that signifies filtering (for example, a funnel) that is widely available on common computer operating systems?


I needed the same, and as far as I can tell there is no FUNNEL, FILTER or REDUCE symbol in Unicode.

However there is this:

⊆ U+2286 SUBSET OF OR EQUAL TO


Some of the most similar chars I've found so far:

∀, ∨, ∇, ▼, Y, Ⴤ, V, ᗊ, ⑂,


This is the best character I could find for myself

Unicode Character 'CIRCLED PLUS' (U+2295)

Which is by no means a funnel, but a kind of like a cross-hair insinuating "target more specific results". There are literally thousands of characters though...

In my case, I am going to use IcoMoon to replace the icon for this character, check out the IcoMoon app here

If you dont have a character map tool, you can use this quick PHP snippet to print out a range of unicode characters:

<?php

for ($i=hexdec("25ff");$i<=hexdec("26ff");$i++) echo sprintf("&#%u; ",$i);

Prints

This may help. While looking for the same thing I found that I could print a funnel using this JavaScript line:

String.fromCharCode(57710); // Prints: 

But it doesn't work all the time. Most of the time I end up with a box, like: "". I'm still trying to figure out why that is.
