Similarly, no parts or elements of these symbols may becopied or redesigned in order to create new symbols not included inthis document.This unique project is supported by the following federations:These symbols can only be used when the product is tested orclassified according to the related standard.www.flflfflloorsymbols.comOn this website, you can find all necessary informationregarding this project. You can download a special graphicalfont with all these symbols free of titute23
