Russian ruble gets its own symbol

The Central Bank of Russia (CBR) has announced that a symbol for its ruble has been chosen. Over the last month more than 280,000 people took part in a vote to choose the new symbol. The chosen graphic uses  the Cyrillic letter “P” which has its lower part crossed by a  horizontal strip, Elvira Nabyullina, CBR chairman said. This version of the ruble symbol got more than 61% of  the votes, with the second most popular receiving about 19% of votes.

Russia hopes that the new symbol will get the same recognizability and standing as the $, € or the £. The symbol will appear on future coins and banknotes.

Below are, along with the winner, the other proposed symbols who didn't make it:
