Toilet Door: What do Triangle and Circle mean?

Question by SillyGirl | 2024-01-03 at 19:55

I recently saw a toilet that had one door labeled with a triangle and the other door labeled with a circle instead of the typical male and female pictograms. I was completely unsure which toilet could be behind which of these doors and decided not to go to the toilet at all because I didn't want to blunder into an unpleasant situation.

So that this will not happen to me again: Can someone explain to me which symbol represents which gender?

Even if you first intuitively might assume the opposite:

  • The triangle stands for men
  • The circle stands for women

These symbols are widespread, for example, in Poland.
