The mills in the database files are marked with different symbols, so that the different types of mills can easily be identified. Here, all symbols are listed, which will appear in the future on the map, at the moment this is not yet the case. In case of ambiguity the outside property is indicated by the symbol. A windmill tower without sails with a motor mill in the building gets, for example, the symbol for a windmill tower.
