Where does πŸ¦† Duck emoji come from?


What the duck?

The duck emoji started out on the water, with a few hairs on his head blowing in the wind, but by the time it was approved as part of Unicode 9.0 and added to Emoji 3.0 in 2016, it had been simplified: the little duck body appeared on little duck legs, instead of bobbing in blue water.

He’s a more dignified creature now, and there is certainly no rubber duck nonsense here. That, however, doesn’t stop people from using it when they’re referring to their significant other with a pet name like “ducky.”
