A grey donkey or mule, shown in full profile, sometimes with its hind legs kicking into the air.
Can be used literally to represent the pack animal. Can also be used metaphorically to call someone a jackass or to say that someone is stubborn as a mule.
Because the donkey is a symbol of the Democratic Party of the United States, it may be used in political contexts. Additionally, the term mule can refer to someone who carries illegal drugs across borders, so this emoji may be used to talk about smugglers and the act of smuggling.
Donkey was approved as part of Unicode 15.0 in 2022 and added to Emoji 15.0 in 2022.
🚩 Approved in September 2022 as part of Emoji 15.0. Now available via iOS 16.4, Android 13, Samsung One UI 5.0, and Facebook. Expected to come to other platforms throughout 2023.
