A system of letters used to uniquely identify a stock or mutual fund. Symbols...
Something that is supposed to typify or stand for something else. Many symbols are mere "survivals" -- things which having no longer any utility continue to exist because we have inherited the tendency to make them; as funereal urns carved on memorial monuments. They were once real urns holding the ashes of the dead. We cannot stop making them, but we can give them a name that conceals our helplessness.
A visible sign or representation of an idea; anything which suggests an idea or quality, or another thing, as by resemblance or by convention; an emblem; a representation; a type; a figure; as, the lion is the symbol of courage; the lamb is the symbol of meekness or patience.

Something that resembles or stands for something else.
A symbol is anything that stands for or represents something else. An object that serves as a symbol has its own meaning, but it also represents abstract ideas. Writers sometimes use conventional symbols in their work, but they also create symbols of their own through emphasis or repetition.
Image, figure or object used to represent an abstract, moral or intelectual concept It's necessary to differentiate between symbol and sign. A symbol implies more than its immediate meaning. Sometimes even the represented concept can have different meanings according to the person considering it. A flag si aclear example of a symbol. As a sign the flag is just a synonimous of its corresponding state or nation. As a symbol it represents a set of people, institutions, emotions and non rational feelings in a somewhat ambiguous way. The study of symbols is called symbology while the study of signs is called Semiology.
"An object in fiction that represents something else, either because it genuinely resembles the other thing, or because it brings about an association in the reader's mind."
an object in a film that stands for an idea, or that has a second level of meaning to it, e.g., a window or train=freedom, a rose=beauty, a cross-roads=a decision point, etc.; the more a symbol is repeated, the greater its significance Example: the Coen Brothers' Fargo (1996) - when Jerry Lundegaard is viewed -- with a beautiful overhead crane shot -- as a lone, small figure emerging from an office building into a snow-covered, vacant parking lot - his path to his vehicle takes him through a cross-roads of car tracks; or in M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense (1999) - the visual clue or symbol of cold air indicating the presence of ghost spirits

A sign or object that both exists in its own right and stands for something else. According to philosopher Erich Fromm, these may be traditional (red roses = romantic love), conventional (the Stars and Stripes on the U.S. flag), accidental (the tea-cake that represents the past in Marcel Proust's novel about memory and time), or archetypal (the World Axis, the sacred mountain, etc.). Though symbols of all kinds may appear in a given myth, clearly the archetypal is the most important in the study of mythology generally, in which symbols operate as a set of universal signs that the analyst decodes in order to discover latent--psychological and spiritual--meanings.
The official trading symbol used in actual transactions for stocks, options, mutual funds, or indices. A symbol uses letters, numbers, or a combination of the two. If the symbol contains any numbers, it means that it is a mutual fund that has not been assigned an actual trading symbol by NASDAQ and there is no quote service on that fund. For any stock traded on the NYSE, AMEX, or OTC, the symbol is the official trading symbol used in actual transactions. Preferred stock has a dash followed by the preferred stock class. For example, Company B Class A is displayed as BBB-A.

A symbol provides a way to refer to resources and user-interface objects, both in source code and in the resource editors.

A paper lantern and a light bulb are real things, but in "A Streetcar Named Desire," they are also symbols of Blanche's attempt to escape from reality and reality itself. Yorick's skull is a symbol of human mortality, and Melville's white whale is certainly a symbol, but exactly what it symbolizes has yet to be agreed upon.

Knowledge of a symbol's cultural context is sometimes necessary to understand its meaning; an apple pie is an American symbol of innocence that a Japanese person, for example, would not necessarily recognize.

Symbols are objects, characters, figures, sounds or colors used to represent abstract ideas or concepts. A symbol, in its basic sense, is a conventional representation of a concept; i.e., an idea, object, quality, quantity, etc. In more psychological and philosophical terms, all concepts are symbolic in nature, and representations for these concepts are simply token artifacts that are allegorical to (but do not directly codify) a symbolic meaning, or symbolism.
