Where does ๐Ÿšฌ Cigarette emoji come from?

Most of us are familiar with the no smoking sign and its emoji form, ๐Ÿšญ. It’s what the pilot turns on before a flight takes off if you haven’t air-travelled since 1988 and have forgotten you’re not allowed to smoke on a planeโ€”and pretty much anywhere else.

But where you can smoke, you might see the smoking symbol, as the cigarette emoji is officially called by Unicode. It was approved in 2010 under Unicode 6.0. Platforms depict it as a filtered cigarette with smoke lines and a red or ashy burning tip, as shown by the screenshot from Emojipedia below.

Who uses ๐Ÿšฌ Cigarette emoji?

Texters and tweeters use theย cigaretteย to represent smoking. This includes smokers jonesing for a square or (the many more) anti-smokers berating the nasty habit.

While showing a cigarette, it’s the sense of “smoking” that often prevails for the cigarette emoji, lending it to lovers of cigars and marijuana, in particular, as there is not aย joint emoji (yet).

The smoking emoji is often paired with things that go with the activity of smokingโ€”drinking, partying, old associations of smoking with being a rebel and looking sexy, and being edgy andย sardonic.
