An icon that means Publish

I need an icon that means "Publish the thing the cursor points to."

How it works

I put the cursor on a headline in an outline. The headline contains the title of a short rant that I want to publish. Underneath it are a few paragraphs that form the body of the item.

I click the Publish icon in the left margin, and a confirmation dialog appears asking "Do you want to publish this item?" If you click OK, it is published.

The verb is Publish. There's no other word that works.

A candidate

I'm thinking of using the Paragraph symbol -- .

I like it because it is a P, but with a twist. With a tool tip you could quickly learn that it means publish this.

The candidates

If you want to brainstorm this, have a look at the collection of Font Awesome icons. Any of those could be used easily, from a technical standpoint.
