Where does come from?
The backpack emoji is part of a group that includes coin purses, handbags, luggage, and briefcases. On various platforms, this emoji appears in a range of colors and styles, with LG’s looking like a rectangular, red box and WhatsApp’s being a more realistic version, an orange bag with straps and zipper compartments.
Some claim there is a need for more adult versions, both a hiker’s backpack and a more “street” kind of backpack, which is used widely by young people everywhere.
This emoji was first approved under the name “school satchel” as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
Who uses ?
The backpack emoji is used in things related to school and to school sports, especially high school and college football. The emoji also appears in social-media posts, especially on Instagram, relating to adventure, or travel.
The emoji is also used in fashion-related posts that deal with both streetwear and high-end backpacks and bags, and it has been adopted on Twitter in reference to the street slang “the bag,” which implies large amounts of money, and possibly drugs, with a bag being the vessel of transport.
