Where does come from?
Approved by Unicode 6.0 in 2010, the banknote with euro sign emoji, as its officially called, also goes by the euro banknote(s) and just euro emoji.
On most platforms, the emoji depicts a bundle of green €100 notes, though Google and Facebook’s unmarked blue bills imply €20s.
While it is far less popular than its dollar counterpart, the banknote with euro sign emoji still makes some headlines. In 2014, for instance, former Irish rugby player Ronan O’Gara used the emoji to rib New Zealander Dan Carter after signing a very lucrative deal with a French team.
