FilledSmallSquareShowSpecialCharacters is an option for Cell which specifies whether to replace \[Name], \:nnnn, etc. by explicit special characters.

FilledSmallSquare With ShowSpecialCharacters->False special characters are always displayed by name when possible.

FilledSmallSquareShowSpecialCharacters is more often set at the level of styles or notebooks than at the level of individual cells.
