This cheat sheet provides a quick overview of the most common flowcharting symbols. The cheat sheet includes a picture of the flow chart symbol, the symbol name, and a short description of the symbol.
The flow chart symbol names are derived from the names used in Microsoft Excel, which in turn are derived from the ANSI standard symbol names. Some flow chart symbols have alternate names and uses, and the flowchart symbol cheat sheet notes that where necessary.
