You definitely want to show two weld symbols as one may be a prequalified weld whereas the other may not.

weld symbols

For those of you that do a lot of steel work:
Say you have an HSS square shape end butting to the side of another of the same size.  Say you want to weld it all around (never mind why).  Do you show two weld symbols, one for fillet weld both sides and one for flare bevel both sides?  Or do you show one symbol for fillet weld all around, knowing full well it'll get done properly.  one symbol makes for a much cleaner detail.  In this case, weld stress is not a concern.
