Blue is a color that often evokes a visual treat of peace, calm, and serenity. Though the gendered reality of this color is always up for debate, blue is said to be most preferred by most men. So they say.
Moving kilometers away from the harsh gendered world here’s some neutral news for you! Blue is a color that sees a frequent alignment with the element of water, although water is colorless. lol. Blue paints the perfect picture of a beach vacay and anything to do with the seas.
However, blue is not always used in expected scenarios. Sometimes, it can appear as a surprise. So, here are all the blue emojis and the emojis that surprisingly show up with a tint of blue, on the Unicode list.
This one’s an ‘all blue emoji’. There’s no space or intent for any other color. It’s the ideal choice while strongly referring to the color.
Each of these ‘blue shapes’ has its own unique traits when it comes to the solid shapes they represent. But they all come from the same place; a blue place.
We aren’t entirely sure why this particularly stylized rhombus with a dot appears blue on all platforms, but here’s the possible explanation – ice.
💠 may signify an icy diamond that could pass as a jewel or a piece of jewelry. Apart from that 💠 is an aesthetic emoji capable of adding visual appeal to any textual format.
While the usage of this emoji may be confusing online, the answer can be unexpectedly obvious in real life.
A blue book is an actual book, and a confidential one, containing information of statistics and other facts and figures that are of relevance. 📘 also works as an individual symbol based on the content it encloses.
The mysterious 📘 blue book could also symbolize the not-so-mysterious student blue book. These blue books are generally used in examinations in different parts of the world, mostly the USA.
📘 may resemble a student’s record book, project book, or “practicals book” as well.
The blue heart is one of the emojis in the “heart series” where each heart emoji has a different color. The same is carried out with all shapes including circles and squares. But we picked 💙 from the lot to mold it into something greater than just a shape. Heart = Love.
The 💙 Blue Heart is often a heart that’s used to convey love, but the platonic kind. It symbolizes the love that holds friendships together (friendships with zero benefits, ofc). 💙 also works as the “friend-zone” heart emoji. The blue heart is the least romantic of all heart emojis, hence all the emotional distancing.
🫐 is relatively a new emoji on the Unicode list and would take a while before it’s available and supported on all platforms.
Blueberries are the only fruits that are naturally blue. They aren’t bred or chemically infused to seem that way. Blueberries are just innately and gorgeously blue. If you do find blueberries that aren’t blue, then there’s a good chance they’re hybrid.
Whales in general are not always blue. They can be gray and black too. Blue whales specifically are blue. Though the name of 🐳 emoji can be misleading when it comes to general whale colors, it does the job of acting as the synecdochical symbol for all whales.
Now, down to blue whales.
🐳 is a blue emoji of a blue whale spouting. If you don’t want a whale that’s breathing and blowing out water, there’s the 🐋 Whale emoji. Again, this is the “blue whale emoji” in particular, but it can be used for any other whale.
A cyclone is a disruption in the ocean. It’s a chaotic time for the seas. Hence, 🌀 is predominantly blue. The color is not associated with water but large amounts of this element that show brilliant shades of blue. Many times the 🌀 cyclone emoji tends to be used aesthetically than purposefully, which is fine, but it’s also important to know what the emoji stands for.
The current fashion line of jeans opens us to a series of different types and different colors too. For some fashionable reason, 👖 remains the original pair of denim jeans which is undoubtedly blue.
Ever wondered why jeans are blue and not any other color?
The original pair of “blue jeans” was organically made with organic indigo dye. One of the amazing qualities of this dye is that it doesn’t bleed. Instead, it holds the fabric together and makes it softer and more perfect with every wash. And so, 👖 is the OG symbol for jeans irrespective of the variety in the market.
Since blue is the color of water, it’s also the color of all forms of water, which is evident in this emoji.
🥶 is an iced emoji. The face here is on the verge of freezing to death. Not to call this emoji a morbid picture of the winter in any way, but the expression and the excessive amount of blue suggests an unpleasant sensation. Sensitivity to cold is a subjective matter and 🥶 can be used for all those levels. Just because you aren’t freezing, doesn’t mean I’m not too, right Barry?!
The Nazar amulet is a popular relic used to ward off evil energy and negativity. The color used in this amulet is of traditional significance too. The cultures that came up with this talisman believed the color blue to have spiritual value. They viewed blue to be the color of the gods and similarly, hone divine powers and abilities. Hence, 🧿 is a blue emoji with a very good reason.
Though the genie is visibly decked in colors other than blue, it’s the authentic skin of this mythical character tone that caught our “blue eyes”.
Genies are blue because they’re gaseous in nature. Another element that gaseous and blue is the sky! So, the same molecular dispersion that causes the sky to seem blue is the reason why 🧞 is blue too.
This 🧢 baseball cap appears blue on all platforms, thus counting as another blue emoji. In the real world billed caps are available in a range of colors, but the emoji world stuck with this one for some reason.
The uniformity in this emoji’s color can be an attempt to stay relevant with the color code of the umpire’s clothes in a typical baseball match. Besides, blue also indicates that someone’s a professional baseball player.
The style of 🎽 may vary across platforms, but all emojis follow the same design and color code. They all have a blue body and a yellow sash.
There are two reasons why 🎽 has these colors. It’s either an attempt to match the idea of an athlete’s jersey and the color that’s used for most of them. Or, it’s a symbol of winning, where the sash does the talking.
A single “M” layered into a blue sphere can have many interpretations. The most read and popular one of them all is the Metro. Ⓜ️ refers to the Metro connectivity of a place. It’s a general reference to Metro railways, and Metro, as a mode of public transport too.
Anyone who rides or drives can instantly recognize this emoji; the parking sign. A bold “P” pasted onto a blue block indicates that there’s space available and allowed for vehicular parking.
The reason why 🅿️ is blue online and offline is that the color blue in a road sign is said to directly communicate with the owners of motor-powered vehicles. Hence, blue road signs become signboards, especially for vehicles.
This water droplet can be anything from a tear, a drop of clear water to a raindrop. Since 💧 contains water in a droplet, it appears as a blue drop of water on all platforms to suggest the ‘blue’ and ‘water’ connection. Because any other color of water is not as appealing for obvious reasons.
💦 is a group of three single droplets that are originally represented as sweat droplets, as the name says it. But online, this emoji is often depicted as sexual fluids, which is not wrong either because they’re all primarily made of water. The basic composition of the droplets in 💦 and our understanding of the color is what makes this emoji blue on all platforms.
