Where does ♏ Scorpio emoji come from?

The Scorpio emoji ♏, also commonly known as the Scorpius emoji, was approved under Unicode 1.1 in 1993. On most major platforms, the emoji resembles the symbol of Scorpio (a glyph that depicts a capital M with a pointed tail to represent a scorpion) in white and imposed on a geometric shape. On Apple, Samsung, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook, the Scorpio 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 Scorpio symbol is instead on a green 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 Scorpio emoji ♏.

When the Scorpio emoji ♏ is used, it is often accompanied by the word Scorpius/Scorpio itself. This is likely done to help identify what the symbol means, as it may not be familiar even to fans of astrology. Scorpio is commonly known as The Scorpion, and so the Scorpio emoji ♏ is frequently used alongside the Scorpion emoji 🦂.
