We are familiar with the Bat Signal, a searchlight with a bat template, projecting a bat onto the clouds to summon Batman.

Has Robin (or anyone!) ever been honoured with their own signal? Specifically a signal in a different shape, not just "put up the standard bat signal and hope Robin sees it".

Yes, the first time this happens is in the classic serial "The Vanished Batman" from 1956. Robin takes over after Batman disappears. Commissioner Gordon makes a change to the Bat-Signal.

He does so again in "The Blind Batman" from 1961.

There's also an 'R-Signal' seen in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold cartoon episode The Color of Revenge!. Note that this shines over the sky of Bludhaven, not Gotham.

Yes.

In Robin Vol. 2 #182 (March, 2009), during a period where Batman was absent from Gotham, Commissioner Gordon temporarily replaced the Bat-Signal with a Robin-Signal, which shone his signature 'R' symbol into the night sky.
