6 New Emoji Share The Spotlight On World Emoji Day 2021

New emoji in 2021

OMG, it is World Emoji Day! 😮 Time to break out the Bottle with Popping Cork emoji 🍾, unleash the Party Popper emoji 🎉 and Confetti Ball emoji 🎊, and have a party! 🥳 Yes, every year on July 17 we celebrate World Emoji Day and honor our most cherished treasures such as Face with Tears of Joy emoji 😂 and Peach emoji 🍑.

Emoji experts may know the July 17 is also the day marked on most versions of the Calendar emoji 📅. Why? Apple marked July 17 on all of their calendar-based emoji as a shoutout to their old calendar app iCal, released back in 2002. Other companies followed Apple’s example and so Emojipedia.com logically chose July 17 to be World Emoji Day in 2014.

In honor of World Emoji Day, we gathered together six new, buzzworthy emoji that recently joined the emoji family. After you meet these newbies, you can take our quiz to see how well you know your emoji from the years gone by.

Heart on Fire ❤️‍🔥

If you’re just a hunk, a hunk of burning love, we’ve got the perfect emoji for you. The Heart on Fire emoji ❤️‍🔥 can express the fact that your passion burns like a roaring fire in times of love and lust. If your heart is bursting with love for someone, it is time to use the Heart on Fire emoji❤️‍🔥 to tell them how you really feel!

Mending Heart ❤️‍🩹

… Okay. So they just want to be friends. Things will be okay, but for now the Mending Heart emoji ❤️‍🩹 is the best emoji to express how you feel. The word mending means the act of fixing something that was once broken. A bit more hopeful than the Broken Heart emoji 💔, the Mending Heart emoji ❤️‍🩹 is the one to use when you are slowly recovering from a bad breakup or hard times in your love life.
