  • You can find an emoji on Emojipedia and copy from there.
  • Also, all Unicode characters can be found in our code charts. You can specify a character with the number (known as โ€œcode pointโ€) beneath it in the table, such as โ€œ03C0โ€ for โ€œฯ€โ€ in the Greek code chart.

Display message:

We all are better when there is more kindness in the world. The Unicode Consortium reserves the right to accept, decline, and/or remove any adoption that it deems, in its sole discretion, is unkind or inappropriate. Accordingly, please use good judgment in drafting the acknowledgement for your adoption.

In the event that an adoption is declined or removed, Unicode will reach out to the adopter to change the acknowledgement language or find a replacement adoption. All adoption donations are final and no monies will be refunded, so please be kind!
