📫 Meaning: A blue mailbox placed with a raised red flag and a tiny silver or grey lock or latch on the top rim of the mailbox door. This entire structure is placed on a light-brown post.
The 📫 Closed Mailbox With Raised Flag emoji essentially represents the mailing system in the United States. The ‘flag’ also known as a ‘carrier signal flag’ in this case, denotes outgoing mail that is yet to be picked up.
How and When to Use the 📫 Closed Mailbox With Raised Flag Emoji
- While informing that your mail is ready but is yet to be picked by the mail person, use 📫. For example, “It’s all ready. Just waiting to be picked for delivery 📫”.
- 📫 refers to an outgoing mailbox that is generally not chosen over a singularly incoming mailbox. However, if you’re sharing pictures, posts (no puns intended) on outgoing mail, you may use this emoji.
- You can also use 📫 to refer to postcards! If you’re texting someone that you’re writing letters or postcards or if you’re sharing a social media story or post about this tradition that you follow, you can use 📫. Like, “It’s been 12 years and we STILL send each other postcards! 📫”.
- If you’re sharing any postal news or anything informative with regard to a post office or all post offices in general, you could bring in 📫. Similarly, this emoji works just fine even for metaphorical applications of the same use-case.
