Green Emojis That Surface The Good and Not-So-Good Sides of the Color

For all the times you want to go green in your own way.

Green is the color of nature. It’s the color that reflects off of anything earthy, organic, natural, and most importantly, healthy. When we see content about anything healthy in terms of food, green is a color that’s often a part of the ad. It’s always there. In fact, any symbol that conveys healthy food is entirely green or has a visible amount of it.

Though the color green has outweighing positive connotations, it doesn’t always play that way in all contexts. For instance, green is a color that’s associated with negative and damaging emotions like jealousy and envy. It’s also the color of poison or anything poisonous. A gamer would know best. In addition to that, bodily fluids and gases are also painted green.

Whatever may be the polarities to this color, there are some things that remain neutral. Like emojis! Here’s a list of green emojis that are purely green irrespective of the variety of colors the subject may have in real life. Presenting, green emojis!

Green Square Emoji

๐ŸŸฉ Green Square Emoji

There are solid shape emojis persistent with this group of colors; blue, green, orange, yellow, red, purple, brown, black, and white. Some shapes are neutral whereas some have a subjective inclination.

Shapes like squares and circles are neutral solids, but the heart shape always has a personal side to it. The green range of these shapes includes the ๐ŸŸฉ Green Square and the ๐ŸŸข Green Circle. The individual shape of the green heart earns the shape its own section.

Green Heart Emoji

๐Ÿ’š Green Heart Emoji

Squares and circles are shapes that are open to interpretation. They can be and mean anything. But, it doesn’t swing that way with heart shapes. The ๐Ÿ’š Green Heart could have passed as just another colored shape, but there is a specific meaning to this emoji.

๐Ÿ’š could resonate with one’s love for the organic and natural. It acts as a symbol of love for the earth and nature and hence is the perfect sigil for our environment day. ๐Ÿ’š is equally vibrant and open as the other green shapes, but this one has the solid foundation of love.

Green Salad Emoji

๐Ÿฅ— Salad Emoji

Speaking of organic and natural, we have salads!

No salad is ever complete without some green in it. Sure, there are salad variants with minimal amounts of green, but pretty sure that would be a task to set up. Salads are supposed to be and look green. They embody the essence of what’s natural and they ought to have a good amount of it.

๐Ÿฅฌ Leafy Green Veggie Emoji

Many vegetables are green. In fact, there’s an entire section dedicated to them! The greens section or the green leafy veggies section.

This could be the possible explanation as to why green is the color of health, and everything that’s good and organic.

Broccoli Emoji

๐Ÿฅฆ Broccoli Emoji

Here’s another wonderful green vegetable that’s often hated on. Sheesh. We seem to have an innate aversion to anything healthy! No wonder why so many of us have so many problems! Health issues too. The ๐Ÿฅฆ broccoli is not only a vegetable, it’s a miniature symbol of trees too!

Green Apple Emoji

๐Ÿ Green Apple Emoji

Teacup Without Handle Emoji

๐Ÿต Teacup Without Handle Emoji

๐ŸŒฒ Evergreen Tree Emoji

Another emoji with the name and the image rooting for the color green! The evergreen tree is a fauna species that never runs out of color. It is biologically meant to stay green for the entire course of its lifespan.

There are other tree emojis like ๐ŸŒด Palm Tree and ๐ŸŒณ Deciduous Tree but none of them are as chlorophyllic as evergreens. They’re all subject to seasonal changes in the leaves and it’s quite ruthless to ask something of that magnitude from them! Nonetheless, the color of healthy trees without any weather changes is green.

Kiwi Fruit Emoji

๐Ÿฅ Kiwi Emoji

The kiwi emoji online renders all kiwis to be green but in real life, they can be purple, red, brown, or golden too!

Sadly, there isn’t a purple kiwi emoji, but the good news is that this one works for all.

Nauseated Face Emoji

๐Ÿคข Nauseated Face Emoji

The next stage of this nausea, ๐Ÿคฎ Vomiting, also has green in it, but the color is limited to just the vomit.

Shamrock Emoji

โ˜˜๏ธ Shamrock Emoji

The shamrock is the definition of something more than just a leaf. โ˜˜๏ธ sparks imagery of celebrations for Saint Patrick’s Day. But, why?

Apart from this occasion, โ˜˜๏ธ also symbolizes Ireland and hence, anything Irish. All this makes โ˜˜๏ธ a busy emoji given its diverse interpretations!

Four Leaf Clover Emoji

๐Ÿ€ Four-Leaf Clover Emoji

๐Ÿ€ may seem like the cousin of the previous leaf with just another leaf in the stalk. But! That extra leaf is what makes this emoji that special and rare. A four-leaf clover, as green as it is, is also a universal mark of a rarity because these clovers are that tough to find.

Pear Emoji

๐Ÿ Pear Emoji

๐Ÿฅ‘ Avocado Emoji

Herbs in general are green except for a few exceptions like lavender, chives, common sage, etc. Considering the generic “green image” of herbs, ๐ŸŒฟ is a green emoji on all virtual platforms.

Check Mark Button Emoji

โœ… Check Mark Button Emoji

Japanese โ€œReservedโ€ Button Emoji

๐Ÿˆฏ Japanese ‘Reserved’ Button Emoji

It may just be about the chemistry, but pretty sure it’s not one between your body and this green chemical fluid!

Cucumber Emoji

๐Ÿฅ’ Cucumber Emoji

Cucumbers are mainly four types, of numerous varieties; Armenian, Persian, English, and Lemon cucumbers. All of them are green veggies. The big ones and the small, are all fresh types of green.

Leaf Fluttering In Wind Emoji

๐Ÿƒ Leaf Fluttering in Wind Emoji

Leaves are green unless acted upon by seasonal fluctuations. Yes, there are some leaves that are not green, but most are flourishing bits of chlorophyll. ๐Ÿƒ is the symbol of spring; a time when all leaves (excluding the exceptions) are green. So, ๐Ÿƒ is a green emoji for two reasons; the season and the wonderful chlorophyll.

Pager Emoji

๐Ÿ“Ÿ Pager Emoji

Pagers may not be the chosen way to communicate in the modern age, but they’re not obsolete just yet. These devices today are secured only for certain professions. Pagers are now the professional choice rather than a personal choice.

The device in ๐Ÿ“Ÿ isn’t green, but what caught our eye is the screen. It’s green on every platform. This “green screen” (no puns intended), facilitates better visibility and readability. Not to forget the color’s potential for great night vision via its neon variants.

Christmas Tree Emoji

๐ŸŽ„ Christmas Tree Emoji

๐ŸŽ„ is the ornamental version of the ๐ŸŒฒ Evergreen Tree. A typical Christmas tree is essentially a decorated evergreen tree. This invariably makes the ‘Christmas tree’ tree a green tree, and the ๐ŸŽ„ Christmas Tree a green emoji.

Tanabata Tree Emoji

๐ŸŽ‹ Tanabata Tree Emoji

The Tanabata tree grows from the same basis as the Christmas tree. It’s the symbol of celebration for the Japanese festival, Tanabata. This tradition denies the “Tanabata Tree” to be an actual tree since it’s a bamboo tree or any other tree peppered with vibrant decorations and wishes written on paper. Nevertheless, ๐ŸŽ‹ does count as a green emoji because the body of this festive tree is green.

Pine Decoration Emoji

๐ŸŽ Pine Decoration Emoji

The western picture of a ‘pine decoration’ would involve pine cones instead of something green. It’s the Kadomatsu tradition of Japan that makes this pine decoration and the ๐ŸŽ emoji, green. This festive decor is not based on the fruits of a pine tree but the tree itself, along with pieces of bamboo trees.

Seedling Emoji

๐ŸŒฑ Seedling Emoji

Irrespective of the seeds sown, every seedling sprouts green before it shoots into the color(s) it’s genetically disposed towards. Everything’s chlorophyll infused. That’s what makes all seedlings green and that real-life inspiration is what fuels the ๐ŸŒฑ Seedling emoji, online.

Frog Emoji

๐Ÿธ Frog Emoji

Not all frogs are green per se. But most of them in cartoons and factually have a solid green skin or one that has some amount of it.

Green is consistent with this ๐Ÿธ amphibian emoji and the reptilian emojis as well. Despite the variety in their colors and shades, the following reptiles are portrayed as green emojis on all virtual platforms – ๐ŸฆŽ Lizard, ๐ŸŠ Crocodile, ๐Ÿข Turtle, ๐Ÿ Snake, ๐Ÿฒ Dragon Face with its ๐Ÿ‰ Dragon Body.

Other reptiles such as ๐Ÿฆ• Sauropod and ๐Ÿฆ– T-Rex are shown as green animals on the majority of platforms except for a few where they are shown with brown, blue, light blue, or gray bodies.

Green is a complex color. It has many sides and shades to it. It’s sometimes seen and viewed as the most beautiful color but sometimes, it’s not so captivating. Whatever may be your POV when it comes to green, we hope these green emojis do their best in imparting the same.
