This symbol represents the lira. Lira is the official currency used in Turkey and the Turkish part of Cyprus. The Turkish government organized contests to choose a design for the new Turkish lira sign and the goal to enhance the prestige and increase recognition around the world.
After choosing the right design and applying some changes, they released this symbol that has two prominent features of the lira and economy, which are confidence and steadily rising value. The anchor gives the impression that the Turkish economy is safe, and the two parallel lines are symbols for the steadily rising value.
