Since 2014 Georgian currency Lari has its sign. The concept of Lari sign is based on graphic letter "Las" (L) of the Georgian "Mkhedruli" alphabet. Adding two vertical parallel lines to the arc of a "simplified" one-arched "Lasi"- results in a stylized image of a "full" three-arched letter "Las".
In order to ensure correct adopting of Lari sign, the National Bank of Georgia developed the "Lari Sign Implementation Principles and Supplementary Manual". At the same time the National Bank of Georgia developed a special "Lari Symbol" font, which contains more than 50 symbols stylized after different fonts. You can find and download them from the official webpage of the National Bank of Georgia: http://www.lari.gov.ge/
