slanted line / sloping line

Hello:

In this no smoking sign:

1. A sloping line is put over a cigarette.
2. A slanted line is put over a cigarette.

I think "slanted line" sounds better, because this line is part of a pattern.


Am I correct? Thank you.

    Neither sound idiomatic. "A broad diagonal red line strikes through the cigarette."

    I'd call that a diagonal line.

    The description could be something like the no smoking sign depicts a cigarette in a red circle, with a diagonal line through it.
