White is a color that’s repeatedly found where purity, divinity, spirituality, and perfection are preached. Society has in fact been so in love with this color that even human skin that looks white is considered superior! But here’s what’s hilarious. White is the amalgam of all colors in the rainbow; VIBGYOR. The only way white can ever be produced is if all these colors unite. Seems like the color itself mocks our ignorance!
Anyway. White is just a color like every other color. There are some earthly characteristics associated with this color, but it’s a neutral shade through it all. Pretty sure even white would be embarrassed by all that we’ve done with the color! Presenting, all-white, pure white emojis!
Squares are the given solid shapes for each of the colors on the Unicode list (red, yellow, orange, purple, black, white, purple, and brown). But, only black and white have an added variety of sizes for this group of solid shape emojis. Along with this large square emoji, there are ◻️ White Medium Square, ◽ White Medium-Small Square, and ▫️ White Small Square emojis.
Apart from plain solids, black and white also offer a combined square design; the 🔳 White Square Button and the 🔲 Black Square Button. Each of these buttons has a unique design. 🔳 would appear as just a white square frame on a black screen and vice versa.
Although solid white shape emojis would obviously be camouflaged on white backgrounds, they will be seen on colored pages. The ⚪ White Circle would look like a translucent circle on most platforms, except for Windows, where ⚪ is supported by a black circumference. The intense whiteness of this emoji may cause it to seem brownish or grayish as well.
The 🤍 white heart emoji follows the same “white criteria” as the other solid shape emojis.
A white heart signifies love for the color in different ways and forms, apart from the individual meaning of a white heart which translates to ‘pure love’, ‘spotless/flawless love’, or even ‘innocent love’. The amount of positivity attached to this color is insane.
🤍 could also be a symbol of love and support towards something that’s definingly white or white in any other way. Like, #savepolarbears, #savethearctic, etc. Anything that’s predominantly white. Not the race.
If you’re acquainted with cartoons, you’d understand this emoji better. Each time Tom was defeated, he’d raise this emoji. What does it mean though?
When 🏳️ is up in the air, it suggests a sense of defeat, as it’s brilliantly shown in the cartoon. 🏳️ could also be a symbol of peace, a truce, an agreement, and basically anything to do with fixing things with brains than brawn.
Yes, this emoji is not entirely a white flower. It has a visible bright pink or red outline. Nonetheless, it is called the white flower. Generally speaking, this emoji could represent any flower that’s white. But we’re talking specifics. 💮 is a Japanese academic mark of appreciation, in elementary school. It’s when the teacher is super impressed by your neatness and other criteria that you can win the white flower!
A question mark is the common punctuation mark in any interrogative context. But, what’s the “white” specificity doing in something as common and generic as a punctuating character? The answer lies in this emoji’s twin! The ❓ Red Question Mark!
The plausible reason for red and white to be the only two colors used for the question mark emoji has to do with the psychology of these colors. Red is viewed as the color of danger, and anything alarming, while white is perceived to be a docile shade. Based on this contrast, the emoji list has ❔ for casual questioning and ❓ for serious situations.
White hair doesn’t always indicate aging or old age. White is a color, remember? So, a person can choose to color their hair white much before their tresses naturally turn. Both instances are possible with 👩🦳. Other genders that equally rock this hair are – 👨🦳 Man With White Hair and 🧑🦳 Person With White Hair.
Swans are most often white than black or any other color. The binary weighs heavy on the white side for these birds. Hence, the swan as an emoji too is white. But, 🦢 can be used as a reference to any swan irrespective of the color.
The actual fish cake is not white. An uncooked cake can be to some extent but not a cooked one. But, the dish 🍥 represents is not your ordinary fish cake. The pink swirl is what sets this emoji and the dish apart. The 🍥 fishcake with swirl represents the iconic narutomaki. The pink of the swirl would vary on different platforms, but the body of the cake is always pure white.
🥼 represents the coat worn by higher officials in medical and scientific fields. But, what makes these coats distinctively white? Why are they always white? So much so that even students in these particular departments ought to sport the 🥼?
As mentioned before, white has an insane amount of positivity attached to it. So when a person does wear a white lab coat, the color evokes professionalism, expertise, and cleanliness. It also acts as the perfect uniform for all people in these particular occupations. You can never go wrong with the perfect white. It’s all the same! Another important reason behind speckless white lab coats happens to lie in cost efficiency as well.
The emoji world attempts to differentiate between the interchangeably used ‘mouse’ and ‘rat’. A mouse is shown with white skin, whereas the rat donnes a gray body. Nevertheless, it’s not always segregated that way in the real world. Skin/fur tones may overlap regardless of the type of mouse/rat.
Clouds are white. Seasonal changes can affect the color of these fluffs, but they’re invariably white otherwise. Some platforms showcase this emoji with a tint of gray, hinting at an upcoming storm. There are other cloud emojis on the list that are modified to replicate the real nature of clouds upon climatic change, most of which still carry a white body.
Outdoor volleyballs can be brightly colored with shades like blue, red, yellow, green. Sometimes, they’re also a combination of these vibrant colors. However, indoor volleyballs are the ones that are polar. They’re either bright yellow or solid white. Considering the nature of this emoji, it can be safe to say that 🏐 is an indoor volleyball. But, emojis are inclusive in every way and 🏐 can represent a volleyball in any setup.
There is no such thing as ghosts, but if there are, then they’d all be white, somehow.
We can’t be completely sure as to why ghosts are portrayed as demons clad in white (ironic? Always), but we could attempt at a sensible answer.
Firstly, all-white ghosts are seen in dark environments. This means they’re probably dressed that way to improve their own visibility and scare the hell out of the living. Secondly, ghosts are believed to be spirits of the dead (because we have 🧟 zombies for the undead!), and what color says ‘spirit’ better than white?
Teeth, like clouds, are supposed to be white. But they can change color as a consequence of external factors, which in this case would be poor dental hygiene. Non-white teeth are unhealthy before they are unattractive. Brushing twice a day, flossing and frequent trips to the dentist can help keep your teeth pearly white!
Doves and pigeons are the same, just for the record. That makes these birds more varied than just an all-white species. There are different shades of gray, black, and fawn doves too. But! Cultural representations of doves highlight the white kind, and for “color-appropriate” reasons. If it wasn’t for the white dove carrying an olive branch, we’d be short of so many peace symbols! White after all means peace, amirite?
Believe it or not, there are six distinct types of salts that are differentiated based on color! Yes, salt, like everything else ain’t always white. There’s black, pink, gray, red, and white salt. Albeit this variety, the emoji list stuck with white salt for obvious reasons. Popularity.
Takeout boxes in reality come in an array of colors depending on the brand’s preferences. Virtually, on many entertainment platforms, these boxes are often seen in their signature red and white designs. They suggest Thai food takeouts, which can be symbolic of any other South Asian cuisine as well.
There’s nothing purer than milk because it evidently contains the color white to a great extent. But going by the fact that white is the merged result of the rainbow spectrum, milk might just be the sober version of the actual thing. Gotta see sounds and hear colors for that.
A container apart from a glass holding this liquid together is the 🍼 Baby Bottle.
White is a wonderful color. It’s the purest, most innocent, divine, spiritual, heavenly, angelic and flawless color, just like every other color. Now, there’s no need to be biased even towards colors! It has it’s significance in psychology but inclusively, it’s on the same pedestal as all colors.
Anyway. If you’re referring to something that’s pure, heavenly, divine, innocent and white, we hope these white emojis are helpful.
