Andrés,

For me, ␃ U+2403 SYMBOL FOR END OF TEXT
has various glyphs depending on the font. I see either an 8-pointed
star with ETX inside, or a lower right corner.
This seems to fit your request well.

From what I've seen in various publications, commonly ∎ U+220E END OF
PROOF or a similar square-like glyph is used for that purpose.

My personal favorite, though, is ៚ U+17DA KHMER SIGN KOOMUUT
