The person doing cartwheel emoji was approved in 2016 under Unicode 9.0.

While all platforms depict a yellow person, the emoji’s design varies. Some vendors feature a woman (Twitter), other’s a young boy (Samsung), and yet others a gender-neutral figure (WhatsApp).

Apples’s emoji shows a person in a leotard, as if an amateur or professional gymnast, while Facebook’s portrays a young girl with pigtails in casual clothing, as if playing on a Saturday. The posture and orientation of the cartwheeler (e.g., on one or two hands) also vary from platform to platform.

Subsequent emoji updates provide gender and skin-tone modifiers for the generic person doing cartwheel emoji. Older platforms don’t support the emoji, displaying a box or question mark instead.
