I think you mean the "<:" digraph. It represents the "[" (opening square
bracket) character. The official term is "alternative token" (see section
2.5 of the standard), because some of the tokens have more than two
characters. (These include the bitwise and Boolean word operators, i.e.
"and".) They're considered after the preprocessor (phase 3 of section 2.1),
and trigraphs are done earlier than that (in phase 1).
