Brown is the color of the earth. It’s the shade of the soil, mud, land, it’s the color that paints life and sustenance. Many things that are natural and organic in every way are brown. Trees, wood, autumn leaves, skin tones, and even poop! It’s all brown. This color resonates with our existence to such an extent that it’s quite sad that brown is also one of the tones that face the wrath and ignorance of discrimination.
Brown is a gorgeous color, despite it all. It’s one such shade that can fit almost any container. In fact, it’s mostly the shade of the container. This color is not just available in the world out there, but the emoji world too has an incredible variety of brown symbols. Caution: Most of them are animals! If you think about it, brown is the most popular shade of fur and skin tones.
Presenting, all the all-brown emojis!
🟫 Brown Square Emoji
A solid square holding solid brown within can refer to anything brown. You could be talking about the color of book wrappers, the dress code, the color code for makeup, the earth, earth day, the land, the color of wood, the color of your house, anything, with 🟫. The same goes for the 🟤 Brown Circle Emoji as well. These solid shape emojis, as vresatile as they can be are very inclusive of the color they consist.
🤎 Brown Heart Emoji
An emoji that brings together the depiction of love and the color of the earth surely does signify love for the planet. If you don’t want to get that generous, you could talk of or about anything brown that you love with 🤎. This emoji fulfills all positive connotations of the color.
- I absolute love my skin tone 🤎
👞 Man’s Shoe Emoji
Male fashion is relatively the blander fashion, most often. Societal beauty standards are super biased towards men this way. They’re expected to wear subtle, neutral, and boring colors as compared to women.
Times are changing, but it’ll be a little longer before loud and festive colors become universally accepted for men too. 👞 is a symbol of that boring footwear. The signature pair of brown shoes.
🥾 Hiking Boot Emoji
Ah! A non-gendered piece of footwear.
Hiking boots are unbiased in every way, as all footwear should be. Shoes are helpful in walking, running, jogging, and any kind of footwork. They bar feet damage. This means, every person (irrespective of their gender, sexual orientation, skin tone, nationality, etc) indulging in such footwork inevitably needs such footwear. If you’re on a hike, you ought to wear these 🥾. Shoes must be left to be shoes!
🌰 Chestnut Emoji
Chestnuts offer a special shade of brown. These fruits are generally the same tone as 🧱 Bricks, as they too have a texturized mix of both red and brown. However, this mixture banks harder towards the latter. Hence, they’re reddish-brown and not brownish-red.
🦉 Owl Emoji
If you’ve watched Harry Potter (okay, now there’s no need to be snarky, it’s possible that someone hasn’t watched the most famous movies series), you’re well-acquainted with the brilliant use of owls throughout the screentime. They are mostly white owls.
So, why’s this one brown?
Brown is the color of commonality. Many animals and birds alike tend to have brown fur/feather/skin tone at the baseline, before diverging into other neutral shades. There are brown owls as a matter of the fact, but there are other colored owls as well. In attempts to avoid that niche, it’s always safer to generalize with the most common color 🦉.
🥜 Peanuts Emoji
Peanuts or groundnuts are deeply in tune with the color of their home, the ground. These nuts can range from brown to red and sometimes in between as well. But, the shell is usually, brown. It’s the kind of brown that’s super light when dry and deep brown when wet.
Also, all peanuts are groundnuts, but all groundnuts needn’t be peanuts.
🥔 Potato Emoji
Potatoes are earthy little fellas. Botanically, they cannot pass the brown spectrum. These veggies are brown all the way, across all species, and in every country that eats, sells, grows, and buys them. Potatoes can have skin between pale brown to dark brown. But if you do find a green bunch, you need to store them in a place that’s nice and dark, to have healthy brown potats!
🐡 Blowfish Emoji
The fish we see in the 🐡 Blowfish emoji is the inflated version of the pufferfish or the blowfish. These super-flexible fishes are light brown when dormant and puff into a visible layer of white (mostly on the bottom side of the body) in response to perceived danger.
🐻 Bear Emoji
Bears in reality have fur coats toned anywhere between four main colors; black, brown, white, and red. Most times the latter merges into brownish fur rather than occurring as individual fur color.
These mighty animals are black or brown-furred in general. Based on the appearance of bears in fictional and animated genres, 🐻 is a brown emoji on all platforms. Inspired by this little generalization, the 🧸 Teddy Bear emoji is brown too.
🦦 Otter Emoji
When we said most of the brown emojis to be animals, this is where it begins. A back-to-back brown animal listicle (for a while). Otters are light brown on the inner side of their bodies and darker brown on the upper side or the back of their physique.
🦥 Sloth Emoji
Sloths too have brown fur. Their coats are mostly teamed with more brown, lesser or no brown, and sometimes with green fur too! So, sloths may seem to have a brown body but they also have a tint of green in their blanketing fur coats, that often go unnoticed.
🦔 Hedgehog Emoji
If you’ve been active on social media (and if you watch and follow animal pages), you may have come across tons of adorable hedgehogs videos and reels. These little fluff balls are commonly found in different shades of brown. But, there are gray, gray and white or salt and pepper, black and white, and even all-white hedgies.
🐒 Monkey Emoji
Monkeys are brown beings. There are black and red monkeys as well, but brown is the broader umbrella for monkey fur. However, the pigmentation of the 🐵 Monkey Face can vary. Some have black faces, some blue, some red and even pink!
Other monkey emojis feature the philosophical team – 🙊 Speak No Evil Monkey, 🙈 See No Evil Monkey, 🙉 Hear No Evil Monkey
🐎 Horse Emoji
Horse coats are much more varied than any other animal fur on this list. Though there are multiple shades and combinations of coat colors, the source tone for most of them is brown. The main fur colors include black and white along with brown, and any merge of shades tends to exist between these colors itself.
The other horse emoji (independent horse) is the 🐴 Horse Face. We specified ‘independent’ because 🏇 riders and 🎠 carnivals just won’t let horses be!
🦌 Deer Emoji
Conventional deer coats are brown, and deer that aren’t of this color become the center of attraction, for obvious reasons of rarity. So, considering the commonness of brown deers, it’s quite safe to paint deer and deer emoji with a brown crayon.
🦘 Kangaroo Emoji
These boxing champs are ideally covered in reddish coats in most parts of Australia. The red in kangaroo coats is oftentimes mixed with a pinch of brown. Some kangaroos can have entire brown coats, whereas, some have gray, grayish brown, and grayish red fur too. The unconventional shade for the roos is black. If you were to spot a black kangaroo, it’s not a kangaroo, to begin with! It’s the tiny champ, wallaroo!
🦂 Scorpion Emoji
Scorpions are vibrant arachnids. They’re venomous in the most colorful ways too. The 2000+ scorpion species that walk the earth invite tons of variety. Red, black, and even blue scorpions are present, some of which have at least one streak of brown on their shells. There are all-brown scorpions too, and the lesser brown scorps as well. But when brown isn’t the only solid color on the scorpion’s body, it tends to be a part of the whole.
🍂 Fallen Leaves Emoji
It doesn’t matter which leaf we’re talking about here, all of them turn brown, come fall. It’s the natural stage of development and movement in the life of a tree. However, this transition from green to brown is not always an organic change. It could also be a sign of poor plant/tree health. Brown is nonetheless the color of the end or death in plants and trees.
🥥 Coconut Emoji
The fruit of coconut trees, coconuts, can have different colored flesh depending on their hybrid conditions of growth. But, authentically and naturally speaking, coconuts have dark brown shells and pure white flesh or copra (the dried version of the same) on the inside. The location and the climatic situation don’t affect these resourceful trees and the fruits they produce.
🍫 Chocolate Emoji
The raw materials that go into the manufacturing process of chocolate are brown; cocoa or cacao beans. It’s only natural for the color of the source to affect the color of the product. Hence, pure chocolate, as we know it, is a constant shade of brown. It could be browner or less brown depending on the additives in the making of liquid, pasty, or chocolate bars.
The source and product analogy of cocoa beans and chocolate play out for anything that involves chocolate in any way. Desserts like 🍪 Cookies and 🍩 Doughnuts that include chocolate in the recipe would invariably be brown products, as they are brown emojis.
🍞 Bread Emoji
Brown is the color of baking and frying. You know when something’s baked/fried perfectly when it has that beautiful layer of golden brown on it. We chose bread to explain this “brownness”, but there are many other bakery products that are brown due to their time in the oven, such as – 🥐 Croissant, 🥖 Baguette Bread, 🥯 Bagel, 🥮 Mooncake, 🌭 Hotdog, 🥙 Stuffed Flatbread, 🥧 Pie, 🥨 Pretzel, 🥞 Pancakes, 🧇 Waffles, 🥪 Sandwich, 🍔 Hamburger
Anything that’s in the oven or on the pan is bound to go brown if the cooking procedure involves baking, frying, deep-frying, grilling, and roasting.
🧆 Falafel Emoji
Falafel is another dish that turns brown upon cooking. The method required to cook falafel is frying, which can be deep-frying or shallow/pan-frying. Ingredients like fava beans, chickpeas, and a bunch of other flavors and spices are ground together to make falafel paste that’s further balled up or flattened into patties. Once fried, both types of falafel will be brown on the outside.
🧉 Mate Emoji
Mate is a green drink, often contained and served in a brown pot-like vessel with a steel straw. The mate/maté vessel is made of gourds like calabash that is further processed and eventually made into a finished product; the signature mate cup.
🪔 Diya Lamp Emoji
Diya lamps are items of festive decoration used in many Indian households and other parts of the world during festivals like Diwali or Deepawali. The brown-ness of this emoji and the lamp, in reality, lies in the main ingredient used to make these oil lamps; mud. Diyas are lit everyday in some homes as well.
📜 Scroll Emoji
Scrolls in general, are brown, because of writing surfaces like papyrus paper or parchment paper that was used during the initial penning. Hence, the color carries on ages later as well. Since these materials were used in the past, the color and the style of a scroll’s presentation instantly evokes a historic sense.
💼 Briefcase Emoji
Briefcases are universally brown than any other color. The range of available colors for this office accessory is expanding in recent times, but many still prefer brown. Most briefcases are brown because of the leather and the tanning material that goes into the making. Brown and black are classic briefcase shades.
🚪 Door Emoji
Wooden furniture is brown unless externally painted with a different color (which is generally not a preference). Tree paint wooden furniture in their signature shade(s) of brown. Other emojis that share this color include the 🪑 Chair, 🕰️ Mantelpiece Clock, 🧹 Broom, and ⚰️ Coffin emojis. These objects are as brown as the amount of wood used in them.
🥉 Third Place Medal Emoji
The sports universe has segregated three precious metals into three different ranks. Bronze is one among the set, and it is used to congratulate and honor the third rank. We’re not entirely sure of the ranking system, but we’re sure of the color of the metal and this emoji. Bronze is metallic brown by nature, thus rendering both, real and virtual aspects of it to be brown.
Other All-Brown Emojis
Brown is a radiant color. It’s the tone of nature, the earth, mud, and everything that holds us to our roots. If you’re referring to the brilliance of the color brown, online, we hope these emojis help you out!
