Where does ♌ Leo emoji come from?

The Leo emoji ♌ was approved under Unicode 1.1 in 1993. On most major platforms, the emoji shows the symbol of Leo (a glyph that resembles a simplified drawing of a line) in white and imposed on a geometric shape. On Apple, Samsung, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook, the Leo symbol is on a purple square with rounded corners. On Microsoft, the purple square has sharp corners and is surrounded by a black outline. On Google, the Leo symbol is instead on a yellow circle.

On Twitter, many people put the emoji representing their star sign next to their usernames in order to identify themselves. As is the case with all of the other zodiac signs, this is also true for the Leo emoji ♌.

When the Leo emoji ♌ is used, it is often accompanied by the word Leo itself. This is likely done to help identify what the symbol means, as it may not be familiar even to fans of astrology. Leo is commonly known as The Lion and so the Leo emoji ♌ is frequently used alongside the Lion Face emoji 🦁.
