A FBI document obtained by Wikileaks details the symbols and logos used by pedophiles to identify sexual preferences. According to the document members of pedophilic organizations use of descriptions such as "boylove", "girllove", and "childlove" to indicate the pedophile's gender preference and have corresponding symbols for each.

One logo features blue spiral-shaped triangle surrounded by a larger triangle, represents an pedophile​ who is attracted to boys.

A variation of this logo features rounded corners to resemble a scribbling by a young child, thus represents a pedophile who is attracted to boys.

One logo depicts a small heart surrounded by a larger heart, symbolizing a relationship between an pedophile and minor girl.​

Another logo resembles a butterfly and represents non-preferential gender child abusers.

According to the documents these symbols are indicative of advertisement methods used by child sexual predators to promote their cause and advocate for the social acceptance of sexual relationships between adults and children.​
