🌻 Meaning and explanation


The emoji 🌻 is a bright yellow sunflower with a green stem.


This emoji is often used to symbolize warmth, joy, positivity, and nature. Sunflowers are known for their characteristic of always facing the sun, so this emoji can also be understood as a symbol of optimism and loyalty. It is also sometimes used to represent late summer or early fall, when sunflowers are in full bloom in many parts of the world.


The sunflower emoji is part of the emoji collection released in Unicode 6.0 in 2010.

The sunflower is one of the most eye-catching and recognizable flowers due to its size and bright color.

How to use
