**Directional symbols** are used to point or indicate direction. In its simplest form, it is a triangle, chevron, or concave kite, usually affixed to a line segment or rectangle, and in more complex forms a representation of an actual arrow. These are universally recognized for indicating directions. Our keyboard does not contain arrow symbols, so we use Latex Code to write them. So below are the most used directional symbols with their Latex code.
