In Boolean Algebra, the NAND and NOR gates are called universal gates because any digital circuit can be implemented by using any one of these two i.e. any logic gate can be created using NAND or NOR gates only.

Every logic gate has a representation symbol. The below image shows a graphical representation of all logic gates
