Every year, new emojis are commonly requested on social media platforms, as well as part of petitions, studies, or campaigns.
Requesting an emoji is different to the act of proposing an emoji. A formal proposal, if recommended, may lead to an emoji being approved by the Unicode Consortium.
If you're wondering whether an emoji has been proposed before, consider searching Emojipedia for any approved emoji, or browse:
The above list contains details of proposals that have been approved, declined, or held for potential future release.
Emojipedia also compiles a list of emojis commonly requested by our users, which is published each year:
