blue means they hadn't activity since your last visit.
red means they had new activity since your last visit.
scrolling means they have more than 1 page length.
The red star means you've participated in the topic.
The lock means the topic is locked.
The little circle inside the big circle means the forum has sub forums.
Announcements have an i.
Is there any other symbol around?

This is what I understand from observing the forum. I may be wrong, but surely you'll have "official" feedback.

I've noticed there are a few more symbols, but you can sort them out by yourself. It's not hard. :smile:
