Heavy Black Heart

Corazón negro

→ 2665 ♥  black heart suit ⁓ 2764 FE0E  text style ⁓ 2764 FE0F  emoji style

Officially named "Black" heart but often displayed as a red or pink heart. Red and pink are the most traditional colors used for a heart, largely because the human heart is red in color. A heart is used to symbolize the emotion of love. Humans have long associated the feeling of love with the heart. The symbol for Valentine's Day is a heart. A red heart is used to symbolize love, passion, and romance. Intense desire. This particular emoji can be confusing in that it is officially named a "black heart" but is displayed as either red or black. A black heart has a completely different meaning from a red heart. A black heart is often associated with death, evil, or being emotionally cold (without compassion, feeling or love). Generally, however, this emoji takes the form of a red heart.

Emoji History The emoji code/ image log of changes.

  1. This emoji was part of the proprietary / non-standardized emoji set first introduced by Japanese carriers like Softbank. These emojis became part of the Apple iPhone starting in iOS 2.2 as an unlockable feature on handsets sold in English speaking countries.
  2. In iOS 5 / OSX 10.7, the underlying code that the Apple OS generates for this emoji was changed.
  3. The code generated for this emoji was changed slightly in iOS 7 / OSX 10.9 (a variation selector was added) advising the OS to display character emoji style instead of black and white text when available. We don't mind Apple, thank you! We just love our emojis! [Sources 11438-emoji-var.pdf 13.7 Variation Selectors (]
