Where does 🦚 Peacock emoji come from?


The term peacock is used for the male, while the female is known as a peahen. For real!

And, yup, it’s the males that display the bling in their iridescent tail, with shimmering jewel tones of blues, greens, and golds. In India and other southeast Asian cultures, the bird is symbolic of power, royalty, vanity, and pride.

The ancient Greeks used the peacock as a symbol for immortality, and eventually the Christians adopted it, with the eyes in the tail representing the all-seeing eye of God. The bird eventually came to be associated with Paradise and the Tree of Life, and, essentially, immortality once again. The golden peacock symbolizes joy and creativity for Ashkenazi Jews.

Talk about a hard working bird!

The peacock emoji shared the limelight with a crazy mix of new emoji when it was approved as part of Unicode 11.0 in 2018. It debuted alongside soap, sponge softball, cupcake, mooncake, lobster, kangaroo, and swan emoji, to name a few. Oh, and the test tube.

Peacock was added to Emoji 11.0 in 2018 as well.
