I saif it: there's no symbol in Europe for pistes, just colors. The
American "Bunny hill" maps to "green" pistes in Europe.
(the European piste colors are used also for drawing their ways on maps,
not just found in signages).
Piste signs are typically all the same shape in the same station (most
often discs) and the text on it (if present) shows the name or number of
the piste in the station, or just an arrow showing the direction to follow.
