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.
Directional Symbols and their LaTeX Code :
TERM SYMBOL LATEX
Double left arrow \Leftarrow \Leftarrow
Double Right arrow \Rightarrow \Rightarrow
Double headed arrow \leftrightarrow \leftrightarrow
Long left arrow \longleftarrow \longleftarrow
Long right arrow \longrightarrow \longrightarrow
Double up arrow \Uparrow \Uparrow
Double down arrow \Downarrow \Downarrow
Double up arrow \Uparrow \Uparrow

Double up down arrow \Updownarrow \Updownarrow
Long double headed arrow \longleftrightarrow \longleftrightarrow
Hooked left arrow \hookleftarrow \hookleftarrow
Hooked right arrow \hookrightarrow \hookrightarrow
Left harpoon up \leftharpoonup \leftharpoonup
Left harpoon down \leftharpoondown \leftharpoondown
Right harpoon up \rightharpoonup \rightharpoonup
Right harpoon down \rightharpoondown \rightharpoondown
Map to \mapsto \mapsto
Right Left harpoon \rightleftharpoons \rightleftharpoons
Long double headed arrow \longleftrightarrow \longleftrightarrow
Long maps to \longmapsto \longmapsto
