Please see the below image, what is the TeX code for the left most symbol? It is like \omegaup, but looked thinner and a little italic. I have looked it through the file symbols-a4.pdf and didn't find it. If it is really in the file, please point it out and forgive my careless.

one symbol like omegaup

@TH: according to your comment, i tried italic w. yes, it is really like what it is in the Chinese Load Standard. i am really stupid. thank you. – warem Mar 21 '11 at 7:31
@Andrey: the symbol is used for chinese civil engineer to calculate wind load according to relative chinese standard. it has a specific physical meaning but i don't know how to give it an english name. i am sorry. – warem Mar 21 '11 at 7:36
@TH: Maybe you make an answer out of your comment so that this question won't stay "unanswered". – Hendrik Vogt Mar 21 '11 at 9:09
@Hendrik: Not that I was hurting for rep, but it is amusing to compare it to some of my lengthier answers. – TH. Mar 22 '11 at 10:44
