Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking.

  • Improve in what sense? Zarko has provided more efficient and safer code. Do you want the output to look different? – cfr Oct 6 at 13:01
  • Please add to the text of your question that the image should consist of two parts -- the "partially circled plus" (or whatever its name is) and the arc beneath it. (The item in the photograph looks like a branding iron.) – barbara beeton Oct 7 at 14:08

See, if this work for you:


    \begin{tikzpicture}[line width=5pt]
\foreach \i in {0, 90, 180, 270}
\draw[rotate=\i] (0,0) -- ++ (45:1) arc (45:90:1);
