Is there a way to determine a non-dwarf civilization's symbol?

I think you can request someone engrave it on a wall somewhere, if you know what the civ is called?

You can also see a ascii symbol representation of it in the list entities in legends mode. That's the little symbol to the right next to the name. Mind you, this isn't more descriptive than 'silver fish on blue background' but it's a start. These also show up on the historical maps.

Supossedly hearthsmen have entity symbols sewn onto their clothes, but I think that is the government symbol, not the civ symbol...
