The yellow heart emojiย ๐Ÿ’›, along with the other rainbow of heart emoji, was approved under Unicode 6.0 in 2010. Across platforms, its yellow shines with a golden hue.

The color yellow can symbolize happiness, positivity, and hope (think sunshine), which helps explain why this emoji, while still used for love, may skew toward feelings of friendship and joy as opposed to the romantic passion of a classic red heart.

The social app Snapchat recognized the symbolism of the color yellow in 2015 when it introduced theย yellow heart emojiย ๐Ÿ’›ย to represent two users who are “#1 Best Friends”โ€”the person who you send the most messages (snaps) to and receive the most snaps from.

Who uses ๐Ÿ’›ย - yellow heart emoji ?

Because it’s a heart,ย yellow heart emojiย ๐Ÿ’›ย gets widely used for love and affection.

But because it’s yellow, it is particularly useful to show those feelings among friends or family or other relationships where aย red heart emoji may seem a bit much.

It is also a go-to for expressing the hopeful and the happy …

… perhaps even when basking in sunshine.

People also take to theย yellow heart emojiย ๐Ÿ’›ย for all things yellow, from yellow makeup to team colors.
