Open a text editor and find the ▶︎ unicode symbol.
It will be called something like:

Unicode: U+25B6 U+FE0E, UTF-8: E2 96 B6 EF B8 8E

Open a sequence in premiere and create a text object.

Keyframe the opacity to 100%

Move forward 15 frames

Keyframe the opaticty to 0%

Select the two keyframes

Right click them and set them to "hold"

Copy both keyframes and paste them many times across your timeline.
