Where does come from?
Strawberries have historically symbolized things like purity and passion. Medieval masons and builders often marked stones and columns with strawberry designs to symbolize perfection and righteousness.
Somewhere along the line, the luscious fruit became a symbol for Venus, the Goddess of Love, due to its faint heart-shape and red color. And so the berry—even before we figured out the magic of dipping them in chocolate—came to symbolize love and romance.
The strawberry emoji first appeared as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
Who uses ?
The strawberry emoji is used in social-media posts relating to food and drink … and to anything related to strawberries: lip gloss, a pajama print, or even vaping.
The little fruit emoji is also used in posts between girlfriends and sisters and in sentiments that are cute , sweet, and innocent. Paired with other emoji like red roses and champagne, it signifies romance and can also mean girlish fun (spa day, anyone?) and indulgence.
It’s also popular in spring and summer, especially around July 4th when strawberry shortcake is on everyone’s menu.
On Snapchat, the strawberry is reportedly used as a relationship status to mean, “can’t find Mr. or Ms. Right.”
