The class Symbol is a subclass of String. It represents unmutable strings, strings that are created uniquely. Symbols are identity objects. If two symbols are equal they are the same object.
 someString asSymbol == someString asSymbol.

The literal representation of Symbols are a sequence of characters preceded by a number sign (#; aka pound sign). See symbol literal.
