The person kneeling emoji was approved under Unicode 12.0 in 2019. The March 2018 proposal to Unicode for the person kneeling emoji also suggested the additions of a person standing (which won approval as๐Ÿง) and person sitting (which became represented in chair ๐Ÿช‘) to join person walking๐Ÿšถ and person running ๐Ÿƒ “to complete a full set of basic human behaviours associated with stillness and motion.”

The kneeling person emoji shows a person in profile, usually wearing jeans, a t-shirt, and shoes, resting on their knees with their hands on their lap. The kneeling person emoji is by default a yellow man or gender-neutral person. When joined with the male sign emoji โ™‚, it specifically becomesย man kneeling.ย When joined with the female sign emoji โ™€, the kneeling person emoji shows a woman kneeling. For all genders, the kneeling person is wearing blue pants or jeans; the man kneeling is wearing a green or red t-shirt (in versions released so far); the woman kneeling is wearing a purple shirt. As for other emoji based on people, skin-tone modifiers are available for person kneeling emoji.
