    I've seen it on brochures and fliers distributed in streets during pre-electoral
    periods by several work unions and local branches of the far-left parties in

    These symbols are common also on some displays sticked illegally on street walls
    and street lights. You'll find plenty of street "art" or tags reproducing this

    But almost always the symbol is used only for what it represents itself and is
    never part of a word. I see it exactly like a logo for a party, or for a company

    I've never seen it used in book indexes for example... Unlike, religious symbols
    that are commonly found near people names in necrological parts of newspapers,
    or in various book indexes where they are used as a convenient and meaningful
    shortcut for a more complete annotation.
