Hello !

You have 2 possibilities.

(Please note two mistakes in your code :
First mistake : dist2= (not dist2-)
Second mistake : ...5] /@ cy}], Frame -> True]; (not /@ cy2) )

1) First possibility : 

Using your idea, just add Axes->True !

       {PlotSymbol[Star, 3] /@ cy}], Frame -> True, Axes -> True];

(You can use Star, Box, Diamond or Triangle)

Looking in <<Graphics`MultipleListPlot` , you will see other possibilities of creating your own symbol shapes.

2) Second possibility : (easier)

Just use MultipleListPlot. It's done for this...

MultipleListPlot[cy, SymbolShape -> PlotSymbol[Star, 4], SymbolStyle -> {Red}]

Objet : [mg67507] Change Symbol in ListPlot

I'm creating a List Plot in the following way. That is fine, "but" it 
creates dots as the symbols. Is there a way to change the symbol (from a 
dot to say a cross) in a ListPlot environment?
I got it to change in a Graphics environment, but then there are no 
axes. Which environment is better for which occasions?
Thank you all for your help, I am really new to Mathematica!

Now the "code" with Listplot, that I can make to show plots only:





ListPlot[cy, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"t1", "z"},
     PlotStyle -> {GrayLevel[0.1], AbsolutePointSize[10]}];

\\If I use the Graphics package, I can use "PlotSymbol", but I don't 
have axes:

       {PlotSymbol[Box, 5] /@ cy2}], Frame -> True];

Thanks for your help!
