Guemil is an open source pictogram initiative oriented to risk and emergency situations. It makes available a visual standard for diverse stages and platforms of information (before → during → after). These icons are simple and useful resources for design and applied research.

In Mapuche iconography, the Guemil is a symbol of writing system. It represents the domains of science and knowledge, as well as manufacturing and the art of transformation.
