I assume that all of your symbols are within the same font - correct?
If yes, if you open the font in your operating system font viewer you
will see each symbol and what character it is representing. You can then
use this character either in classified rendereres, rule-based renderers
or in a QGIS expression, e.g. with a CASE statement. You enter the
chosen character in "Layer properties" --> "Labels" --> "Label with".
Please consult the styling chapter of the QGIS manual for more details:
- it helps you get going.
And: please do not forget to cc the Qgisemail@example.com mailing
list if you correspond with people. Otherwise only you see the responses
and the rest of the world can't read/contribute to the issue.
