    From the placement on the notification bar, it is a system icon. Most systems are customized, so it will be necessary to know the device type and the Android OS on it, before knowing for certain what system component this could be reporting on. Please edit the question with these details. – wbogacz Jan 10 '15 at 21:20

This means that you only have priority notifications enabled. Pressing a volume button will allow you to select different notifications which show/make a sound.

There is a choice between no notifications, all notifications, and priority notifications, which can be changed by pressing a volume button. Going into Settings/Sound & notification allows you to set which notifications have priority, such as only showing SMS and missed calls.

In Samsung Galaxy S4, it is called "Interruptions" under "Sound and notifications" menu.
