Did you know that there's a swastika in unicode? Actually, two: a left-facing and a right-facing one: 卍/卐.

There's some odd pictographs in the Arabic section: ۞۝۩

Tolkien's Tengwar is there, but it's not supported by my browser.

There's a circle of commas, and a circle of breves: ҈ , ҉

I have no idea what this is: ᢆ

A triple-integral crossed by a circle? Whazzat mean: ∰?

Ogham, Cherokee syllabary, Canadian aboriginals, Glagolitic... geez, is there a writing system on earth not represented? Of course, the plurality is kanji/hanzi/hanja...

The swastika was used as a holy symbol for thousands of years by everyone from Hindus to Native Americans (usually left facing for Buddhists) before Hitler bastardized it.

Not sure about the pictures, but the integral thing is a volume integral. (contour integral)∮ (surface integral)∯ there are also these.

You might need to set your system font to an Arial Unicode or download Code2000 or Code2001. Unicode support is definitely a very useful thing to have.
