Explanation: symbolic is more general - anything can serve as a symbol whereas iconic usually reffers to some kind of pictorial representation (sacred or secular) that stands for the subject/object it is named after
For example you have icons on your comp desktop, each one symbolizing an application, file, etc...
I propose tsalmi (tsadi-lamed-mem-yod) for iconic and simli (samech-mem-lamed-yod) for symbolic
