In essence (quoting from the DifferenceBetween.com page):
- Both symbols and icons represent other things, but icon is a pictorial representation of the product it stands for whereas a symbol does not resemble what it stands for.
- A symbol represents products or ideas, whereas icon represents only items that are visible.
- Icons are restricted to graphical representation of objects and one can easily understand what they stand for. On the other hand, one has to learn what a symbol stands for, as it is not similar to what it stands for.
