Emoji Ordering, v12.1
For the new beta version, see v13.0β.
This chart shows the default ordering of emoji characters from Unicode CLDR data. The cell divisions indicate the rough categories that are used to organize related characters together. The categories are broad and not exclusive: and any character will match multiple categories.
The emoji modifier sequences are omitted for brevity, because they are simply ordered after their emoji modifier bases. In the CLDR collation rules, the emoji modifiers cause a secondary difference. See also the machine-readable files: emoji-ordering.txt and emoji-ordering-rules.txt. To make suggestions for improvements, please file a CLDR ticket.
While these charts use a particular version of the Unicode Emoji data files, the images and format may be updated at any time. For any production usage, consult those data files.
