Cardinal marks don't have specific shape; usually it's buoy with post or bar. They are always colored with yellow and black horizontal belts. For these marks top sing is specific - double pin allways black colored. Position of tops in double pin and sequence of yellow and black belts are exactly defined for each quadrant.
