Index & Help | Images & Rights | Spec | Proposing Additions

This chart shows proposals that provide historical background for each accepted emoji (character or sequence). This usually includes the first time that the emoji was considered for encoding, which often predates the development of the standard form for proposals.

Caveats: the proposal data is draft: suggestions for corrections and other improvements can be submitted at Emoji Proposal Corrections.

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. For information about the contents of each column, such as the CLDR Short Name, click on the column header. For further information, see Index & Help.


There are two tables, one organized by proposal and one by emoji:
