This icon is supposed to represent a magnifying glass. It's a large circle with a fat line protruding out from the bottom of it at an angle. The line is meant to represent the handle of the magnifying glass while the circle represents the magnifier portion.
We've received the idea on April 08, 2012 and created the icons on May 31, 2012
