The elemental symbols are standard - not sure why there should be confusion - where online have you found shows similar confusion?

Fire = upright triangle
Water = reversed triangle

(together as a hexagram was a symbol for brandy/whisky merchants, fire-water)

Air = upright triangle with horizontal line through middle
Earth = reversed triangle with horizontal line through middle
