U+4DC0 – U+4DFF   (19904–19967)

The Yijing Hexagram Symbols range was introduced with version 4.0 of the Unicode Standard, and is located in Plane 0, the Basic Multilingual Plane.

These symbols are used in the ancient Chinese Book of Changes, known as the Yijing or I Ching. There are some related symbols in the Tai Xuan Jing Symbols range.

The characters that appear in the “Character” columns of the following table depend on the browser that you are using, the fonts installed on your computer, and the browser options you have chosen that determine the fonts used to display particular character sets, encodings or languages.
