symbol=* is a human readable equivalent of osmc:symbol=*, both describe route symbols that are used as waymarkers or on guideposts

See Walking Routes for country specific use of this tag.

Description

The symbol tag is used for describing symbols of hiking and other trails in a human readable form. It is usually accompanied with osmc:symbol=*, which contains a machine readable description of the symbol of the trail. Example:

You can use international naming options in this format:

Implementing software may choose to use a local database for connecting osmc:symbol=* values to an icon or to a name, or it can choose to loud read the value of the symbol=* tag.

A routing software might say: "Turn left to the red bar and follow for two kilometers."
