This is part of a series of icons used in templates on various Wikipedias to represent the merging or splitting of content. Both GIF and SVG renditions of each exist. The GIFs exist for reasons of uniformity and backward compatibility. In Windows versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer prior to version 7, the SVGs render without transparency unless a special workaround is applied. This workaround is in place on the English Wikipedia, but works only for Internet Explorer version 6, and the workaround is not in place on other wikis.

The SVGs, while not exact replicas of the original GIFs, are superior when displayed at sizes greater than the GIFs' native dimensions. For example, see the two renditions of the "Mergedisputed" icon at 275 pixels:
