Sounds like you're referring to ⌘ (U+2318, PLACE OF INTEREST SIGN).

I'd suggest checking the LaTeX symbols guide. If there's nothing  
useful there, you might have to resort to a graphic, unless you want  
to get involved in custom font setup issues.


(Of course, if you were to consider the xelatex route, it's simply  
{\fontspec{Lucida Grande}\char"2318}.)
