    Thanks! It looked similar but not exactly alike in the charts so I
    wasn't sure, and web searches for "Π˜Π²Ρ”Ρ€ΡΠΊΡ—Ρ§" or "Π˜Π²Π΅Ρ€ΡΠΊΡ—Ρ§" gave no

    Anyway, with a few more searches I discovered that our icon is a version
    of this one: ("Π˜Π²Π΅Ρ€ΡΠΊΠ°Ρ ΠΈΠΊΠΎΠ½Π°" in Russian)

    Sure enough, I see in that...

    "In Russia, Little Yus was adapted to represent the iotated /ja/ я in
    the middle or end of a word [...]"
