πŸ“― Postal Horn

A postal horn (usually called a post horn)Β was used in the 18th and 19th centuries to indicate that a mail coach was arriving to deliver the mail. When the horn was blown, people would have to get out of the way, sort of like a siren today.

The appearance of a postal horn is similar to that of a bugle β€” a trumpet-like brass musical instrument without any valves.

This postal horn can be found in the logos of many European postal services, and is alsoΒ shown on theΒ front of the European Post OfficeΒ emoji in the Apple artwork.

Postal Horn was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
