If you know the entity number of the special character you can create that special character simply by using the following code.

document.Add(Phrase.GetInstance(" This is " + (char)945));

Substitute your entity number instead of 945. Hope this helps.

Edit: FontSelector class in iTextSharp will help you further if you have the required font with the symbols.
