U.S. NRC Fact Sheet: The New International Radiation Warning Symbol   [open pdf - 146KB]

This United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) backgrounder discusses the new international radiation warning symbol. The new symbol, "a red triangle containing the traditional trefoil radiation symbol with waves radiating toward a skull-and-crossbones and the figure of a fleeing man, is meant to supplement the standard trefoil symbol, which warns of potential radiation exposure. It is not meant to replace the trefoil."
